Wildlife

 

When I think of wildlife, I think of bears and wolves. Searching for and finding these magnificent animals and then getting a meaningful photo is thrilling, sometimes even heart stopping. In order to get the shot I have had close encounters with both bears and wolves. I always take precautions but sometimes these unpredictable creatures make sudden moves that put you in harm's way.

 

It seems safer to photograph more placid looking animals like bison yet more people are hurt by rampaging bison than bears. It is exciting to get close to large animals such as bison, moose and elk. Observe and photograph them on a cold morning with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, the golden sunlight illuminating features, you hear them chewing the grass, well that is bliss. Please enjoy.
