"How Close Can You Get", Last night at a friends place there were three juvenile deer around the property in a subdivision. These Deer were not tame enough to walk up and touch but I was so surprised at how calm they were and how close I could get (zoomed to 200mm). It was quite an experience being that close.
For the shot: There was not much light as the sun had just set so I pulled out my 70-200 F/2.8 and 5DMKII, even with that combination the image was taken at ISO1600 F/2.8. No tripod, taken handheld, as I was walking/squatting and moving closer and closer, while kneeing down I rested my elbow on my knee to keep it as stable as possible.

Thanks +Andy Boyles +Peter Greene +jennifer howei +Don Little +Photo Mania Canada +akio onoue for taking your time to visit and leaving comments. Thanks to all who +1'd and for the shares as well. best regards
+Peter Greene the photo here was taken in a subdivision and they were quite tame, out on the Aspotogan Peninsula (Nova Scotia)  the deer are wild and I can never get that close so for me it was a treat.
Thanks +akio onoue for your continued visits.

"Sounds of Spring". The sound of Peepers on Backman Road, Bayswater, Nova Scotia at night. Short 20 sec video taken with an iPhone6Plus, It's pretty noisy and dark but the sound is what is important.

"Goose Yoga"

This image was taken back in early Sep 2014. The Geese hang out quite a bit along this part of the shoreline in Blandford eating the green sea grass to build up their energy for the migration, even though some of the Geese still stay for the winter.

I enjoy watching Geese grooming, they get into alot of positions that one would not think possible.

With the relatively large rocks along this shoreline it makes a great place to hide behind and a good opportunity to use a bean bag which I use a heat-a-seat from Canadian Tire [Reversible Hot Seat, 17-in, Blaze Orange/Black Product #75-0012-4], the reverse side is black and I am always aware of what side is facing the birds.

My close friend "Storm" 2004 - 2015

This image was taken back in July 2014, She passed away on Feb 11th, 2015 due to complications from a severe throat infection.

We had spent a lot of time together hiking and taking many photographs over the years. She was a true angel and I will miss her.

"Spin Dry"

I posted an image of a Belted Kingfisher back in Nov. This is the first image that I captured within seconds of her landing on the tree, she had just flew to the tree from diving into the water.

The fox pups are back again this year, the parents have been returning for the last few years underneath a shed in Blandford. The property was a summer residence for many years however, this year it appears to be in use. Hopefully I will get a chance to take many more images of these little guys, it's so amazing to watch them grow up in the wild even though it's in a small country community. Each year only a few of the pups survive, usually 2 to 3 out of the 6 or 7 born. There is a curiosity but also a sadness in this ones face.

Today when we stopped the car at the edge of Backman Road in Bayswater, Nova Scotia where the many large rocks form a wharf out to sea, this merganser was laying down and initially let us get some shots. Then as she was deciding to fly away or not, I was able to capture this pose. I have not had the opportunity to capture a merganser dry before, it was interesting to see the lighter color of the feathers than when they are wet.

Cape Forchu Lighthouse, Yarmouth Nova Scotia

Back in September, 2014, I took a trip to Yarmouth to see Cape Forchu as I had never been to the lighthouse before. I was hoping for a great sunset but the weather and the angle of the sun did not make for a great combination. This was taken a couple hours before sunset and was a cloudy blue sky, so I decided to convert it to Black & White.

The image is a combination to 2 exposures to control the white on the buildings while getting more detail in the rocks.

"Male Green-winged Teal", a first for me. I got my tripod as low as possible, the light was mid afternoon so it was a bit challenging. The stripe on it's head is typically green, however as the light shines directly on that area it appears purple.

Sullivan's Pod in Dartmouth Nova Scotia is a unique place to see various types of ducks. The water is moving fast enough that the pond does not completely freeze over, well at least the few times I have visited this year.

New Harbor, Nova Scotia shoreline

Out for a sunset back in October and the cloud just killed the light I was hoping for. The surf was moderate and the sky was full of clouds. As it got later, into the blue hour, I felt the image would look better as a black & white eliminating the blue dominant color.

Story
Tagline
Aspiring Photographer - Landscape & Wildlife
Introduction
Photography is my hobby which I started back in the 1990's with a OM10 Olympus SLR, 50mm and 135mm prime lenses, with a C85 flash. Back then I just took photo's on vacations due to the cost of processing film.

In 2001 I started taking pictures for a local high school basketball team using a Kodak 1.6Mpix DC265 digital camera.

In 2005 I tried a Canon Powershot 3.1Mpix A75 but was not too happy with the results.

Then in 2007 I decided to upgrade to a Canon 8Mpix SX100IS with 10x Optical Zoom which then rekindled my interest. As I was spending more time out walking my dog I began to start taking pictures every day and became interested in capturing images of sea ducks which then in 2009 I upgraded to a bridge camera, the Canon 10Mpix SX10IS with 20x Optical Zoom. I continued taking pictures daily and started to get more serious, reading and learning as much as I could.

I then began sharing my pictures online via Google Picasa which was a great experience. As I began to seek out other photographers and comment on their work they began to visit my images and with their supportive comments It not only helped me improve my images it also helped with my confidence.

I then came to the realization that the quality of the images I was trying to achieve required me to consider a DSLR. This was a painful experience as I spent 10 months reading and rationalizing as to what DSLR to purchase. In June of 2010 I decided to upgrade to a Canon 50D which is what I use today along with my recent acquisition (March 2012) a 5DMKII.

I am still on this huge learning curve as my day job does not allow me the amount of time that I would like to spend with photography, but one has to be able to pay bills and feed my Hobby.

I am still working hard to learn as much as I can and continue to try to improve my photography. I am so inspired by so many talented people here on G+ and thankful for so many photographers who are willing to share their knowledge and help us amateur photographers along this complicated and exciting journey.
