River Crossing

Photographing wildlife from a moving kayak is fun but the results are always uncertain due to the movement of the river and the subject. Luck happened to be on our side as we watched this elk in Grand Teton National Park.

The Boys Club

I could be mistaken but along the trail  and just down the hill  was a sign that read “Boys Only”  and perhaps that was so as a Mule Deer Buck and young Bighorn Ram hung out together under the comfort of large shade tree on a warm fall afternoon. This is the first time we have encountered both a Bighorn Sheep and Mule Deer together through the viewfinder. An unusual and interesting encounter.

 

 

 

Just Nibbles

Fall is here and it is time to fatten up. This little Chipmunk was spending their afternoon scurrying about finding and then quickly scarfing down small little nibbles along side of the trail. Yellowstone National Park.

Snipe

Thank goodness for fence poles.

A nice looking Wilson’s Snipe singing away on a fence post along a small county road in Southern Wyoming. Photographed while on the way to Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

Layered Lands

From marsh shrubs to sagebrush to pine forest to snow-covered peaks. A wide open landscape sure helps bring peace and quiet to a busy brain. Looking out from the marshlands at Red Rocks National Wildlife Refuge in Montana.
