Bryce Harper in the foreground (on 3rd) and Wilson Ramos (on 1st) in the background. Both Washington Nationals MLB players. Taken while both were on rehab and playing AAA ball. It's not wildlife but really cool.

Here is one from a few years ago. I was photographing the palmated buck when another buck snuck into the background.

Very cool idea for a thread. Here are some piles of polar bears in Alaska.

Great thread and excellent photos posted by all, I have not tried to take photos like these before and have been missing out I see.

That is very, very cool, Larry! I love the way that each set of 3 Cans is going in opposite directions.

I find that palmated buck to be quite interesting. Did you happen to be able to keep track of him? DId you get to shoot him at all later that season, when he had shed the velvet? Did you ever see or photograph him in any subsequent seasons?

I would absolutely love to find a buck with that level of unusual antler growth!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Yow! Looks like you were pretty close to that bunch! I only encounter black bears where I live, and they don't have the reputation your white bears have for aggressiveness. I would be extremely nervous about being out in the open there.

Great thread.

I don't know if cows are okay, but since nobody objected to the other picture I'll post mine.

I saw this guy quite frequently late summer into early fall. He then disappeared…. I thought I saw him later in the winter but it turned out to be another buck with less palmation. A couple of years before this photo was taken I did find a shed antler that was palmated about two miles from my house. So, maybe it is something in the local gene pool, although I haven’t seen any other palmated bucks.

We are surrounded by heavy hunting pressure so bucks rarely make it to their full potential in my immediate area. I am pro-hunting, but just wish others would pass on younger bucks so they can mature.

I will have to look on an old hard drive to see what kind of pictures I have of him after he shed his velvet. I am pretty sure I have some. If so, I will post them.

The gallery serves as a POTN-specific portfolio. It's a great way for other members to check out a sampling of your work - with one click, and without having to leave the site. Before I made the suggestion, you had already put one image into your POTN gallery, so I suppose you already saw some benefit/significance to doing so.

I use flickr to host my photos. An awesome tip that I learned on POTN. I'm beginning to post some to my facebook account as well, mainly for family as they are not part of the Flickr world.
When the new POTN format came out, I posted one to my galley simply because the new system prompted me to. It's becoming too much, so I'll likely not post much to the POTN gallery.

This was taken this winter near Ambrose, North Dakota, near my work. Back in a windbreak around a farm.
