Hiking up the west elk trail we came across this fine looking Red Bellied Marmot hanging out in rocks that matched her fur. A perfect little hangout on a nice summer afternoon. Crested Butte, CO.
Frog in the local pond giving us a look over. He was probably relieved to see we were not one of the Herons hanging out around the shore looking for a meal.
This white tailed deer was photographed on a recent trip to visit family in the midwest. Living in the mountain west for so long I can say for certain I don’t miss the humidity and all the bugs. It sure was fun was running across this deer happily feeding away and hardly giving us a second look as we hiked through the woods. I had forgotten how small white-tailed deer can be.
Is a lip smacking feast awaiting this red fox? We caught a brief glimpse of this red fox through the car window while on a quiet country road and it sure looked like they were onto a meal. Before we could see the scene play out the fox moved into the woods and was lost from sight. A brief yet gratifying experience and a tale yet to be told.
