Still going through images from our recent trip to Jackson, WY and the Grand Teton N.P. Here is a set of a cow moose and her twins feeding near the Snake River.

Out looking for wildflowers in remnant native vegetation, I was watching where I was putting my feet - figuring the snakes would be on the move, as it was very warm - and I still came very close to standing on this pair of sleepy lizards, camouflaged by fallen bark!

They were resting in the shade, right where I wanted to examine an interesting plant.

They didn't move until I had noticed them, and only when I pushed my camera close did I elicit a blue-tongued threat stance (blurry, as I as shooting one-handed while moving my other hand in its direction, to try capturing this display).
Gentle creatures, they don't have much to protect themselves with, besides a hissing sound, a gaping maw, and the threat of a bite that doesn't let go.

These were good sized adults of around 30cm long. They have an unhealthy love of our roads, and are often difficult to see in dappled light, so are common roadkill.

Having "adventures" with my daughters in Parque Lage, a public wooded park, and Catacumba park, a similar one with entry to trails. Both really accessible and close to buildings and roads but showing a bit of wildlife in the heart of the concrete jungle.

The rut is on ... took this pic from my bedroom window into the field behind our backyard. Lived here 40 years and this is the best rack I've seen on a buck. Canon SX50, hey it was handy.

I worked on these a little more to try and get them to “pop”, including the use of some fake bokeh in the first two.

Sadly, this is how we're more likely to see our large skink species - run over by cars or lawn mowers. This was a bluetongue skink, a much sleeker and faster lizard than the sleepy or shingleback lizards I recently posted.

Back in the film days, one of our friends photographed for several of the National Geographic magazines and he took us to Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National parks to show us a technique to find and photograph wapiti or elk. These were taken in RMNP and were taken during the rut. We caught the beginning and the fight for supremacy from afar. It started out peacefully with a big bull herding his harem when bugling started from the woods and soon another big bull burst out for combat. It went on quite some time until the older and bigger bull lost part of his antlers and it was over with a new harem master. I do wish that my lens was longer and better back then.

on wednesday we had great weather out on our tour to "deer-hayfield-top" - Hirschwieskopf.
But there were no deer up there, only some chamois.
in total 25,8 km walk but it was worth all the pains i had yesterday
