Waiting for deer

posted on 21st of february, 2011

Yesterday in the early morning I went out in a forest to photograph deer and maybe wild boars. Before that mornig I scouted some animal trails. Footprints were from deer, so the next morning I woke up at 6 o'clock and went out to the same place. I was camuflaged and sitting on a hunting observatory. Sadly I didn't see any animal, except birds. The only lens I got with was 500mm samyang lens with manual focus only, so I couldn't focus as fast as birds were flying. I gave up and went home. As I was walking home sunrise started and I tried to do something with my 500mm lens. Nothing really good came out from that morning, but that's just the way it is in wildlife photography. You can't predict anything, you must be patient and be prepared on any opportunity.
