Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from my back yard here in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Time
It was mid-day when I spotted the buck in the yard, but by the time I got the camera he had made his way into the forest. Fortunately, the noise from the wind through the trees allowed me to creep closer to him before he noticed me. When he did, we looked at each other for a moment and I snapped of 1 photo before he bolted. I was amazed that it turned out so well.
Lighting
Over cast and snowing, the lighting was soft and not contrasty. I generally have difficulty shooting snow, but the light this day proved to be managable.
Equipment
I shot this photo with a Canon 50D and a 55-250 mm lens.
Inspiration
I have a few bucks every season who spend time in the forest behind my house. I am able to observe them enough to feel I know them as individuals. Some are more tolerant of humans, and I learn fairly quickly which ones will stick around long enough for me to photograph.
Editing
I did clone out a fairly large clump of snow partially covering one of his eyes.
In my camera bag
I try to keep a telephoto and wide angle lens with me most of the time as I primarily shoot nature. I will often stick in a macro lens as well. I keep a polarizer and GND filter, lots of lens cloths, and a notepad and pen.
Feedback
When shooting wild critters, try to spend some time know their habits and habitat. Be patient and calm, and as they spook easily, try to enjoy simply observing them so you aren't disappointed if you don't get the shot. I consider it a privilege just to be able to watch these amazing animals. And of course, never risk harming any animal to get a shot.
