    Buck & Doe In Cades Cove

    I drove over the the Great Smoky Mountains this morning and got a few shots of the deer while they ate their morning grub. I didn't see any black bears. They have been spotted out this late in the year due to the worm temperatures. Here are a few photos of the deer. 1 2 3 4 5

    An Amazing Sunrise

    Yesterday I went to the Smokys. This morning I went back to the lake. The time change made it a little more difficult since the sunrise is an hour earlier than it was yesterday. I took my gear and set up my tripod. I waited patiently until the sun peeped over the horizon. Then, the fun...

    Hank looks grumpy today.

    Hank did not have much luck getting a fish for breakfast this morning. A Fish jumped right in front of him & he missed it. Then, he thought he had a fish & it was just a twig. You can see the disappointment on his face.
