    Finally got out to do some serious shooting again!

    After a couple of short (1/2 hour) sessions with the camera, my foot finally felt good enough to head out into the woods for some serious shooting. We spent about five hours at Parc Omega in Montebello, Quebec to see some of the wildlife in the winter. It was quite overcast, so the lighting was not great for landscapes, but just about perfect for wildlife shots.

    NIce, Manfred

    Love the deer shot in particular, with the fox a close second. Glad you're getting out before the season is gone.

    Thanks Kevin - I'm paying for it today though. My foot is rather sore, but I can't say that my surgeon didn't warn me... I was worth it though.

    And you came out of that jungle in one piece? That foot is definitely fixed.

    Nice shots, I like the deer shots uniqueness the other shots are cool too.

    Hmmm, spoke too soon - well no one said you could run... Take care.

    Manfred!

    Are you telling me that you get out for a couple of hour shoots and see this kind of wildlife?

    And I thought I was in a great place!

    Not only are these very cool, but I for one, am glad you are getting back to the Big Out There!

    Take care of the hoof, man! I am looking forward to more of these!

    Nice series, Manfred. Glad to hear you are healing up well enough to get out again. I like the fox best but a nice job done all around.

    Great images Manfred. I can only admire you for going out in the cold to capture those images.
    What I see on my screen is really great.

    Beautiful shots - that deer shot is like a scene straight out of "Bambi" - trudging through the snow - hungry...

    Beautiful Wolf and beautiful Fox. The richness of their fantastic coats on great display in these shots.

    OK, I'm not wishy washy. I like them all! Never seen a wolf in the wild and that would be awesome. The fox made me homesick for not getting to our Colorado place this winter. I hope you had a long lens on that bison. He doesn't look happy. I agree with everyone else. The deer shot is gorgeous. Somewhat surreal...

    Glad you are able to get back out!

    Unique shots.

    Glad the wolf wasn't that hungry enough to take down one of those deer.
