In early October, I went to RMNP to take pics of elk with my new camera. I spent a week running from place to place trying to get "that" shot. Nothing went as planned. I spent hours out in the park only to find the herd in downtown Estes Park.
Could not get that close-up with the camera I was using. The camera, with good zoom, had a dead battery...ugh!!! Think this was mentioned in Photography 101. Battery check...
He was magnificent!!! Majestic...till I saw the netting and broken tree limbs in his antlers.
|hmmmm...a good wildlife photo taken on the golf course? Just doesn't seem "wild"...|
I finally got 2 good pics, one of a mule deer and one of the big horn pictured above.
Wildlife photographers make it look sooo simple, but that's because they do it so well.
I'm sure luck plays into it and just the sheer number of pics they must take.
For sure, the animals don't pose...
