November 7th, 2012: A Local Park

Last Wednesday a friend and I took a long walk with our cameras. She had just gotten her first Digital SLR camera, and I had just upgraded my DSLR. Who knew we would get so lucky.

My pictures turned out really dark and grainy, I haven't quite figured out my new camera, so I will have to play with my settings a bit before I go hunting again lol

I estimate we saw a herd of about 17-20 or so mule deer (could be white-tailed deer but they look like mule deer to me). There were 3-4 bucks, saw 1 later on not sure if it was the same or not. I have seen a lot of deer here and I hardly ever see bucks so it was pretty awesome to see so many. The most deer I have seen at 1 time before was 11 so this was nice!

We saw a few little birds, a few I think were woodpeckers of some sort, but they were too fast flying to get any really good pictures of them. Oh and we saw an otter, which I think has a fish or something in it's mouth. Never seen an otter before so that was pretty cool!

I love love love knots of wood in trees, I thought this one looked like a heart! I am really happy with how it turned out!

This one was running in my general direction and so I am lucky I got any picture let alone this one. lmao Just glad he decided to go the other way.


  1. What a wonderful day! Great shots Pam :)

  2. Looks like a great time. The pictures are wonderful.

  3. Beautiful, Pam! What a great photos! Looks like you had a lovely walk. So glad all the critters came out to play!

  4. Wow... No other word but stunning. You could make cards of some of these! LOL, I've been wanting to take pictures myself as of late, you just inspired me to get to it! :) I love the heart knot, too!

  5. Pam, fantastic!! Love the pictures! What an adventure ;o) Your love (heart) knot tree is beautiful! Would look great on some cards ;o)
