Run like a deer!

12 posts in this topic

I ran across this doe with 4 fawns. Also, surprisingly, they still had their spots. Unfortunately, it was pretty gloomy weather and while trying to get a shot of the fawns all together, I noticed I was shooting at 1/80 sec. This doesn't work with critters that don't stand still. it brightened up a tad, when I shot the doe. I was able to shoot him at ISO 640, 1/200 sec. at f7.3. I included the second photo so you could see the size and spots of the fawn. It sure included an ungly background. It just seems a bit late in the year for the fawns to still have their spots. But then, due to the cold spring, everything is behind this year.

I've seen fawns well into the archery season (late Sept) that still carried spots. Saw two last night, like the one pictured, with bright white spots yet.

Nice capture.

Thanks, everyone. I just wished there would have been better light so I could have got a decent shot of all 4 fawns together. It's the first time I've seen that many at one time.

DeeDee, I love your avatar. At least that part of my monitor is clean now. grin

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
