One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2018—Effie Yeaw

A few days ago, I visited Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve for the first time.  It is a nature preserve along the American River and I went with my friends Jim and Jack from the Placer Camera Club.  There wasn’t too much bird activity there except for a few turkey vultures sunning themselves atop dead tree snags and of course the ubiquitous Canada Geese because the Nature preserve is part of the Ancil Hoffman Golf Course.  We did see and photograph mule deer, several bucks and does that were not the least bit concerned about our presence.  This doe was just a few feet away off the trail.  I used my Nikon D500 with a 300mm lens with 1.4x teleconverter.

  1. Carol…Nice shot. Jack and I really enjoyed the outing with you. We are looking forward to getting together with you again whenever your busy schedule allows. Thanks for the pointers on shooting with a tripod, long lens and Gimbal head. I appreciate the tip on getting the shoulder pad to protect my shoulder from the weight of the gear. Keep posting your awesome, inspiring images.

    Great headshot. So crisp with the right depth of field.
