Doe At J. T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve

By | March 11, 2020

I took this photo of a Whitetail Doe this past Saturday at the J. T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve in Oklahoma. I saw many Whitetail Deer on this day. I was hoping to see some Elk but I didn’t. I need to check to see if this wildlife preserve still has Elk. I saw several Bucks but they had shed their antlers already.

How I Got The Shot – Doe At J. T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve

Several Deer were in a field near the office and I was standing on the county road that goes through the Preserve. This Doe was leaving the field to go into the woods on the south side of the road. I was hand holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
