Where’s Waldo? – Pemberton, British Columbia – Henrik Nilsson
The first thing I thought of when I saw this image was a harbor seal?!? You see here on the coast we have a ton of seals and they are always popping their heads up out of the ocean and taking a look around. This buck is actually swimming in an “amber wave of grain” and has the exact same expression as our local seals. The hues of brown in this image are magnificent and quite the contrast to yesterday’s ocean blues. Henrik’s focus on the deer in the field is tack sharp much like all of his images. To check them out please visit his portfolios of wildlife from around the world!
Every summer, quite a few bears come down from the mountains around here. So each year, I hit a few of my favorite spots looking to get images of black bears. On this particular day, I was driving in a valley west of Pemberton, Bristish Columbia, when I spotted something in a field. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what it was. It was there and then it wasn’t. But before long, it became very clear that some deer were busy eating in one of the fields. And given the setting, I certainly couldn’t pass that up. I made several images of the deer that day but this one was my favorite. The shot was captured with a Canon 7D on a 500 F4 IS, f10, ISO 400. I used my vehicle as a blind and the window as support (with a bean bag). Yes, I didn’t even have to get out of the truck. How is that for wildlife shooting?! And I did manage to find a few black bears as well.
