Mountain Goat

One of my favorite animals is the Mountain Goat so I was pleased to be able to spend some time watching a few feeding down low in Yellowstone National Park one late spring afternoon. Usually we need the spotting scope just to get a glimpse of these guys feeding high up on the steep cliff faces but this day we got lucky and were able to get fairly close. Beautiful animals for sure.

Painted Brush

Painted brush are just so cool. They are a companion on my yearly wanderings. In spring they are blooming in the deserts and foothills and they follow me along into the high mountains in the peak of summer. So many colors, the fuzz, and the shape, I just might have to post more as the summer progresses as every new photo becomes an old friend.
