Logan brought home a paper from school about the Whiteside County Education and Conservation Foundation 2nd Annual Student Photo Contest. He wants to enter so we went out to the park to find some wildlife. Just inside the gate we saw a deer. It was the same place I took the photo on Day 131, possibly the same deer. So this is my photo for the day. See a couple of Logan's photos by hitting Read More below. (They're better than mine)
I think the composition in this one is great. It's not cropped at all, this is exactly how he took the photo. I told him to keep the deer low in the frame but the execution was all his doing.
The contest is looking for wild animals in their natural habitats. This Heron was standing on a boat dock which isn't exactly natural. Most of the photos he took have the boat dock in them but before we left we moved in close and got one that looks a little more "natural".
