My visit to Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge was off to a great start with my pair of hawk encounters. As the light faded and I continued my drive, I had a couple of more great photo opportunities still to come.
mule deer just north of the Wildlife Drive Turn-Around at the end of 64th Avenue. They were back in the trees, too far and too obscured for great pictures. So I sat and waited. I had the luxury of time -- no plans, nowhere else to be. And lo and behold, their grazing eventually brought them closer and closer to me.
Photoshop skills and did, I think, a respectable job taking them out. Software is scary. But this scene is definitely NOT scary. :)
Four stops, three of which yielded some wonderful photos. A terrific Colorado winter day!
