|Beautiful female ELK|
Today I will share some of the wildlife we saw along with a few more 'purdies' for you. Hope you enjoy! Be sure to click on the pictures for enlargements.
|Lots of pretty wildflowers in bloom, and this one also included a BUTTERFLY|
|BISON/Buffalo---having a 'staring contest' with ME!!!! I think he won!|
|A MAGPIE --dancing a jig for us!|
|A close-up of some of the 'wheat-grass'-looking stuff!|
|Some PRONGHORN Antelopes|
|Some kind of fancy Dragon-Fly|
|A zoomed-in photo of a OSPREY nest --high on some rocks in the Canyons area of Yellowstone; A man pointed it out to us since it was hard to see with the naked eye.|
|I don't know what this wildflower is/was --but the colors reminded me of Autumn (even though it was only the end of August).|
|A Beautiful Mountain Bluebird; I love 'my' Eastern Bluebirds here at home, but seeing these guys in Wyoming was a FIRST for me.|
|BISON-TRAFFIC-JAM; On two different evenings, we drove on this road (Mormon Row Rd) to see the HUGE herds of Bison (at sunset).... On this evening, we also enjoyed a gorgeous evening sky!|
|My favorite capture of the entire trip: a MOOSE|
WELL---I could go on and on --with more pictures... BUT--I'll stop for now! Compared with our September trip here in 2012, seeing the Moose was great --but we didn't seen nearly as many Elk as we did in 2012. We did see more Bison --and getting to see the Osprey and its nest and the Mountain Bluebird were very special this year. BOTTOM LINE: Each time we visit, we make more and more great memories.
Have a wonderful week. After lots of rain and gloom here, we are finally getting some sunshine this week. YEAH!
