Wildlife Photography | Whitetail Winters

For me, sometimes winter wildlife photography is the kind that takes place from the warmth of my living room window with a cup of coffee by my side 🙂 I’m not going to pretend to tell you some elaborate story of how I snuck through the winter forest in snow-white camo, hand warmers, and a face mask in search of the wintering wildlife.

Nope, I’m not even ashamed to say I was in my pj’s, sipping on french vanilla coffee.

I think these deer are over winter as much as the next guy. They came out of the swamp to investigate the single oak leaf resting on top of the snow. Upstate NY Photographer

And it was hard work fighting the dogs off for some window viewing space 😉
