"DO" a female deer, taken from the sound of music, and with the number of deer that we saw grazing on the Meadows At Sachuest National Wildlife Refuge, brought it to my mind.
We arrived before sunrise, parked in the parking lot and searched over them Meadows. There were a number of white-tailed deer all grazing spread over the entire meadow. Most of the deer were does and yearlings (because of the difference in size), however, there was one beautiful 6 pointed buck also grazing. looking with the binocular's you saw deer appearing from everywhere, they were coming out of the woods and up from the marsh. Most of them were unconcerned with the presence of people. In fact, as we walked down the road with our cameras, lenses and tripods, there was a pair of deer that was within 20 feet of us. I have to take my converter off of my lens and even step further back in order to get a full frame picture of the deer.
Later in the morning, we traveled down to Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island to see what we could observe and photograph. In the previous blog, I had post the video of the ocean, which was one of the interesting subjects that we found. The most common bird that was making its presence known was the Canada Goose. Large flocks were flying all around, honking their hearts out. At one of the ponds that is on Ocean Drive, there were a large number of geese swimming around and on the little island. Geese were coming and going, which gave us a chance to do some flight photography.
One of the best pictures that I obtained was a flock of geese that had just taken off from the pond and I caught the flock, all with the flap of their wings down, and the leading goose with its mouth open. It was asynchronous flight and the lead goose was Colin out the stroke.
I also want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday
