Wednesday Potpourri

For my Wednesday Potpourri I am going to offer you three different animals. The first is a group of horses that were feeding in a snow covered field. My daughter loved the trees in the background.
Here is a horse that goes by the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. You can see the fence just above him.
I see Mallard Ducks and a few Mergansers so when I saw this duck I said something strange is migrating through. The best I can tell it is a female Bufflehead Duck that stopped at the pond for one day. It wasn't into smiling for the camera.
I had what was a small four point buck in my back yard so even though it was an ugly day I captured this head on shot. There is obviously a bigger buck in the neighborhood from the broken antler.
I did a little work on the antlers and turned him into a little 6 pointer.
I received an award from another friend.

Great post. Know how many hunters would love to create more points on the antlers? LOL. Congrats on your award.

I love how those horses look in that snow and against the tree - a very beautiful shot!

Great potpourri FG! I've visited a number of times...just no posts. I feel like I know you well. I like what you did with the poor buck! He needed a boost!

I loved the post. How very kind of you to restore the buck's symmetry! Well, in the photo anyhow.

I love the horses in the snow! What lovely shots! It is frustrating when a strange bird or duck comes and you can't get a good shot and you want to identify it! I think water birds are really hard....they just swim further away. Nice deer!

Nice snow pics FG. I hope we get some snow over here, it makes for a great photo - scene. Keep 'em coming!!

Carletta said...

The first one of the horses in the snow is my favorite!
Putting antlers on the deer - aren't you clever.

Ms. Hays said...

Congratulations Mr Fishing Guy! hehe
Your blog deserves awards!!!

tipper said...

Amazing job you did on fixing the buck-and the after fix shot looks pretty enough to be a Christmas Card!! But the horse is my favorite-for some reason it almost make me tear up. I think horses are such gentle special animals-I sooo miss the ones we use to have.

Congrats on the award! You so deserve it for your outstanding blog and photos!! And thank you for the shout out to me-truly makes my day to know you like what I do!!
