Some Animal Portraits

The Monte L. Beane Life Science Museum, on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, has a remarkable collection of animals on display. Especially ungulates, predatory mammals, pheasants, and waterfowl. The animals are all very still, which facilitates close inspection—and photography—though the modest light levels make working at lower ISOs a bit of a challenge.
