Who Goes There

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 5 October 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I don't think these two yearlings realize the true danger of hunting season as yet. They do seem to be interested in something though. I wonder what it was that had their attention. They obviously heard or see something I didn't. What ever it was, it did not bother them or myself. They just carried on about their business.

I hope they manage to carry on about their business through the hunting season which opens this Saturday.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Beautiful shot here! I love the way they are both looking at whatever it was that they heard- It creates a real "portrait" of them! What wonderful fall colors you've got, too!

What a great photo shoot, Lee! I am curious as to what they heard/smelled that you didn't see. Obviously it was nothing too serious. I can't get over the shots that you are able to take. I don't understand how you are able to get a picture this amazing.

Keep up the great photography. Checking out your pictures is always a highlight of my day!
