I have always been into videos more so than still photography but I am starting to like taking pictures with my Canon SX30-IS. Picked it up when my daughter was born and I keep it in the truck with me while I'm runnin' these oilfield locations down here in south TX. Let me know what ya' think!?!?!?
Grasshopper in the yard.

Butterfly in the yard.

A few deer on the Gates ranch by Catarina TX.



This buck was over 300-400 yard's away down a fence line.


Anyone know what the correct name for this bird is. I hear people call it some sort of Mexican Eagle? Not sure but there are a bunch of them down here.

This was a bird from last spring but it was taken with this camera at about 80 yards away.


If you are an amateur photographer I would highly recommend this camera for the price. Think I paid like $350 for it

That's a Crested Caracara, often called a Mexican Eagle. I was raised in South Texas and don't recall ever seeing one--then, last November saw two off the side of the road near Goliad, of all places--
You take some nice pictures!

Really like the pics of the deer in the brush! up

For Newbies in AR Counties - That is what "ears in the alert position" looks like!

Wow, thanks for all the positive feedback guys and gals. I will keep the camera handy and try to get more pics and post them. have noticed those birds are very much like Buzzards. Meat eaters and most of the time that I see them down here they are on roadkill or in the ditch on a dead animal. Neat looking bird though for sure. Spring is in the air so I should have all the lovely turkey pics to post after a hunt or two.

The Mexican eagles are always the first birds on a carcass around here. They keep the buzzards at bay until they have had a goodly share of the meat then they will let the buzzards in to share the bounty. They remind me of a dirty bald eagle.

Thank's man actually that is a young doe fawn from last spring. I see what you mean by lookin' like a spike but I think that is an ear or somethin'. I pulle up on that deer within' 10 or so yards was def. a doe. Thanks for the positive comments though I sure love sharing the outdoors with everyone else.
