22-MAR-2005 Ron Lutz II


Nixon, PA

After work I had to drive up to Butler to accompany my mother to my cousinís funeral viewing. On the way I wanted to find a moment of peace and fresh air and also to get a shot of something.

As I walked slowly along a pond, I heard brush snap close to me. Iím beginning to get a bit faster at getting my lens up and snapping away. I was able to focus and compose a series of shots of this deer tearing off through the brush.

For those of you not from around here, this is a white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus, so named for obvious reasons.

Canon EOS 10D ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
1/500s f/5.6 at 280.0mm iso200, +1.4x Extender full exif

Great shot! I'm sorry you had to go to the funeral, but at least you made the most of the drive.

This is one great shot--a once in a lifetime shot (would be for me). How beautiful.
