After The Rain P7700
Jun 28, 2013

Rainy days are hard to do nature work in, more for keeping the rain off the camera.

So image count is very low on those days even when using an umbrella. I lost a great deer

shot today in the rain. I saw a beautiful deer at close range resting in some bulrushes

just off trail and had plenty of time to get a shot off on a non rainy day but I looked in one

hand which was holding an umbrella and the other hand holding my tripod/camera with

a plastic bag over it. The doe looked up at me and with a grin look on her

face (like not today sucker) got up and left the area slowly. Rats ! I hate when you loose a great

shot like that. Anyhow the goal today was to get a least one shot in the rain and

this is what I got. I have had weather sealed cameras in the past and still won't help as

you still get rain drops on the lens, so on those rainy days look to get that one shot and

go home happy.

Take care,

Dwayne Oakes
