Whitetail Doe Feeding On Ridge

By | March 12, 2020

This is another photo of a Doe I photographed at the J.T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve in Oklahoma. This was one out of a group of Deer that left a field to go up a ridge in the woods. I’m guessing they were going to bed down for the day.

How I Got The Shot – Whitetail Doe Feeding On Ridge

I had just photographed a Whitetail Doe leaving a field to go into the woods on the south side of a county road (Doe At J. T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve). I was standing at that time. I got back into my pickup and drove a few yards when I spotted this Doe crossing the road leaving a field to feed on an oak ridge.

I was using 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. I had the camera and lens on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
