    Spent the morning in the woods seeing what photo opportunities I might get. Was there at first light, but due to the solid canopy of leaves overhead, the woods were darker than I expected and I never really got minimal shooting light for enough shutter speed to freeze animal movement and avoid blurring until around 10:00am...had to cull the vast majority of shots...but I kept a few to document the trip.

    Great shots. I usually can't get the animals to stay still long enough, although I typically don't stay in one spot for long.
