I was inspired by a hare photo made by JonnyA a few years ago. I really admired the contrast in that image. The varying hare population is on the rise in my neck of the woods. Tracks in the snow showed they were using a black spruce area a kilometre from my house so I thought I would have some fun. I threw a few pet food pellets under this skinny stump and after a week or so I set up my camera. The hares weren’t shy. Over a week, I got dozens and dozens of good images. Each day, I would change the lighting just a bit, finally settling on one strobe to backlight the scene. I really like these images. While scrolling through the card, I found a couple of quick images of a lynx dashing through the set. I wonder if it managed a meal that night? A week later, an owl dropped down to investigate. Its black eyes reveal it to be a barred owl. The image was made with a Nikon d3200 and kit lens, shot on manual f11 at 1/80 and 100 ISO. Up to three sb-28s were connected with a TRLcam flash box. A Trailmaster AIR and a Camtraptions PIR were used to trigger the camera.

Love it!!! The second image is especially nice! That's so cool that you got a lynx and owl too. The only shot I've ever gotten of a lynx was also a butt shot, but with the lens fogged over and in summer coat. Look forward to seeing more!

I agree with Jonny ... the second pic to me is a standout. I like the shadows .. always have. Very super pictures. You definitely adjust the bar with this group of pictures.

Wow, those are great. That Owl picture is stunning to say the very least.

Isn't it great when you have steady subjects and a close-by set. Then you can check in often to make slight adjustments and fine tune the lighting.

Great shot of the barred owl and yes, that second shot of the snowshoe is super.

These shots sure capture the mood of the north woods and its legendary hare. But you gotta wonder what the lynx was up to -- chasing a hare? That was a simple set that delivered the goods and more.
