Photographing animals is an awesome experience….when you have the opportunity. They are elusive and skittish. There are a couple of hawks on our private road who swoop down in front of me as I drive out, taunting me with their accessibility, which really isn’t accessibility. If I stop to grab the camera, off they fly. Another ones lives along a road I travel frequently. He knows I cannot pull off the four-lane highway to get a shot of him so he sits there and laughs. But, occasionally I get really lucky and have the camera in my hand in a place where I can actually get a shot. Today I will show you some of my favorite shots of animals. I have gotten images of all kinds of animals, from the White-Tailed Deer in the Shenandoah National Park, to the tiny snail in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
