As we drove around the mountains we would see these small herds either on the side of the road or in the middle. They lick the salt off of it. There was this one small herd that did not seem to care about us at all. I got out of my car and threw some of my oat bar at them. As you can see they don't seem too bothered by my presence:

Look at how sharp and clear your shots are these days!! Such a difference from a couple of months ago when they mostly just seemed to lack that bit of punch in this area. Nice, nice, nice!

A rapid acceleration though. Composition, exposure and sharpness really starting to show through with great consistency now.

thanks. I've been taking in the feedback and copying others and experimenting. Nice to hear it's paying off :thumbup:

Glad you enjoyed them and got some good shots.

BTW I know a fellow that his tossing a granola bar cost him $1000.00. A park ranger saw it and they don't play around since feeding wild animals is not a good idea now matter how harmless it seems.

I was of the same mindset which was why I chose to stay in the car...I should have said something and I really wanted to but I didn't want to make a scene or make anybody feel uncomfortable...especially since I have been guilty of it myself in the past. :shrug:

thanks all.

I wasn't sure about the granola thing either but didnt want to make waves. which is funny in the end that we both didn't say anything and I went along too. Next time I will follow my instincts
