While watching a nice herd of mule deer one young Doe stood out and she was all ears and eyes.
Just as dusk sets in a cute little wren made a visit to the fence in the backyard hopping from picket to picket for just a couple of minutes before taking off into the approaching evening proving the adage that something small and unexpected can make your day.
A porcupine peaking out from behind a lodgepole pine near Willow Creek Pass in Colorado. We seldom see theses guys while out and about so this was a treat.
Have a great weekend.
For the next couple of weeks we will be posting some of our favorite posts from the past as we take a small respite from the digital world.
Just as we turned a corner while skiing on the Blacktail plateau we came across this guy having breakfast. We watched him for a minute but when he stomped his front hoof and gave us a grunt knew it was time for Quick U turn. We did not get to ski to our planned destination but it was a good day nonetheless.
The local ponds are chock full of common Goldeneye but a Barrows Goldeneye is a rare visitor. Photographed along Clear Creek in Denver, CO.
