7 Image Story | White-tailed Deer Although it was quite a distance, the white-tailed deer easily heard me walking since the leaves crunched beneath my feet as I walked along the path. Upon seeing the deer, I stopped to change to a telephoto lens. The deer just stood its ground. A few simple clicks with an effective focal length of 540mm captured the deer’s image nicely. See 7 Image Story | Fall Walkabout for the entire story.
7 Image Story | Fall Walkabout This walkabout turned out to be my last fall color walk through the local woods before the leaves all fell signaling winter’s impending arrival. Upon entering the woods, soft afternoon light revealed a path covered with freshly fallen leaves. In fact, so many leaves had fallen, it was sometimes difficult to differentiate the path from the forest’s floor. The leaves crunched beneath my feet as I walked along the path. The sound seemed bit louder with a calm wind. Although it was quite a distance, the white-tailed deer easily heard me walking. Upon seeing the deer, I stopped to change to a telephoto lens. The deer just stood its ground. After the deer went on its way, a tree trunk provided a nice rest and a place to change the lens again. Off hiking again, I lost the trail several times and walked off through the woods until stumbling over fallen branches. The stream runs along the eastern edge of the woods and really only flows after a significant rain. Wildlife use the stream as a pathway through the woods and surrounding area. Looking back from the foot bridge near forest’s edge, I promised myself to come back in the winter’s snow. This week’s posts will showcase on these seven images.

Wooded Walkabout Before too long, green and gold will give way to the white of snow. Every time of year has its own rewards. Fall color is beautiful; still, no less beautiful as a new fallen snow. Enjoy each day while you can. Rest assured; a new day will bring new treasures.

Juvenile Bighorn Sheep Like most kids, this guy was curious; in this case, about me. He kept edging his way closer and closer to me. After this image was captured, he actually walked onto the same ridge line where I was positioned. He stood there quite a while so I just waited until he left to climb down.
Wine Country Color These grapes will soon be on their way into wine. Wine country in northern Michigan becomes vibrant with contrasts this time of year. This image was captured just off the road on the way to the Old Mission Lighthouse.
