Jeff Raflik's Animal Photography

July 24, 2009 - Silver Lake, Eagle River, WI - While photographing a Loon family straight out, just off shore, two does and a fawn appeared on the shoreline just off to my right.

The next day, after the above pictures, I was photographing the same Loon family, and at one point, while there was no Loon activity, I randomly turned around to see a buck, two does, and a fawn, casually walking down the center of the road, hardly twenty feet from me. I went for my camera after they got a little farther away from me, and wandered through several front yards on the other side of the street.

July 29, 2007 - While photographing a couple of rare bird sightings in Horicon Marsh, from hwy 49, these two coyotes (pups?) appeared at the northern tip of the marsh, and made their way south, toward the highway. Along the way, they came within just feet of several herons and egrets, but never made an attempt to catch any of them.

April 15, 2006 - A deer standing in the river, while taking a drink from it. Combined Locks Municipal Park, Combined Locks, WI.

May 8, 2005 - While photographing an eagle nest in Appleton, this raccoon transferred four babies from one knothole, to a higher one.

A baby, waiting for his turn to be transferred, and a shot of the adult a few weeks later.

May 22, 2005 - A fox den just outside of Beaver Dam. The two pups were easy to photograph, but when an adult came back, I made a very small noise, and scared it away. I'll try again soon, now that I know how quiet I need to be.

1-30-05 Three miles South of Waupun, a herd of about 25 deer are consistantly just off the side of the road every evening. Mostly does, but I spotted the buck, an 8-pointer I think, just as he was slowly making his way over the hill, looking back once in a while.

1-27-05 Same place, and same herd, as above pictures, a few days earlier.

July 25, 2003 - European deer at a privately owned game farm in Upper Michigan. First, a picture of a couple variations of Fallow Deer, and then a couple shots of a Sika Deer.
