Great wildlife photos take skill, luck and gear - SFGate

It lasted only two or three seconds.

I was getting in position to try to photograph a hummingbird in midflight last week, when, out of the forest, a momma deer emerged with three fawns following her. Three fawns and one momma? That alone is amazing. In the next moment all three fawns suckled her. Might not see that again.

You don’t see these types of things coming: The great moments in the outdoors. Especially with wildlife.

If you’re lucky, when the surprise arrives, you’ll have a camera with you. If you’re really lucky, you’ll get some kind of picture. If you’re lucky and good, have the right equipment and react in the moment, you have a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime photograph.

Last week’s encounter with the doe and her fawns was a testament to good fortune.

The best time of year to see wildlife is now, the summer-to-fall transition. With the prospects of less food available over winter, all wildlife, birds and fish try to eat as much as possible. That makes them available in high numbers from mid-September to late October.

In a drought, there is less greenery and water. That compresses wildlife to smaller areas: meadows with creeks, parks in the foothills with green grass, golf courses with ponds, and lakes with feeder creeks with riparian areas.

Some of the recent photographs submitted to me by readers include a badger (of all things!) at a golf course, a fox at close range at the Palo Alto Baylands, coyotes in San Francisco, bear scat found in Marin near Fairfax and a hawk attacking a bald eagle in mid-flight over Highway 92 at Crystal Springs Reservoir on the Peninsula. These are featured in a gallery of wildlife photos at, along with my photos of the momma deer and the kids, a bear grabbing a salmon in Alaska, and a point-blank “eyes shot” of a fox.

There are three keys to having an encounter like any of these:

Location: You must be out there. It will not...
