Deer

Bounding Bambi

Bounding #Bambi in Grand Teton National Park. This fawn was one of a pair that was hanging out with their mother two weeks ago.

Mom walked off and this little one didn’t mind being apart – for a little while. It then bounded off once it decided mama was too far away. I don’t know how old it was but it was very fleet-footed!

Deer fawns in the grass

 These two young deer were hanging out with mama in the southern part of Grand Teton  National Park this morning.  They were absolutely the cutest thing you can imagine.  They were also quite fleet-footed as when they ran they were very agile and fast (a different picture I will share in the near future).

Bambi in the tall grass

Well, maybe not that famous fawn, but this young deer and its mama were out walking yesterday.  It was very curious about me and didn’t seem to understand what the fuss was about.  I just love seeing all the newly born wildlife in spring and early summer.  Taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.

Saturday photo shoot turns into a veritable hawk fest

My usual Saturday morning wildlife viewing started out quite slow.  A drive through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal yielded little more than a curious deer but after heading north and east, hawks and owls clearly became the dominant subject.

Swainson’s Hawks were plentiful in the area north of Denver International Airport with many of them being more than willing to pose for me.  Most notably was a pair ‘caught in the act’ mating on a fence.

From there I headed to a known Great Horned Owl’s nest to check on the family.  The three owlets who aren’t too small anymore had worked themselves out of the nest and were lower in the tree.  Dad and Mom kept a watchful eye from nearby.

Hawk quest (and a few other critters)

My son and I headed out this morning for a quick photo tour of some of our usual haunts.  This included the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and the surrounding area.

At the Arsenal it was pretty much standard fare with the bison being the most notable.  Just to the north we came across a hawk that was kind enough to give us a few very nice flybys.
