Gentoo Shadow

It is hard to be creative when it comes to penguin portraits – that said, I was excited to see the shadow of a nearby Gentoo penguin on the chest of this guy as I felt like it added a new dimension.

This Bighorn Sheep was just outside of Canyonlands National Park, near Moab Utah.

I had pretty good luck finding these guys in Anza Borrego and Zion last year – but I was thrilled to find them in such a beautiful setting as this!

Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear, Denali National Park, Alaska.

Even though I was “safely” by my vehicle, I must admit, as I watched through the view finder and saw this guy turn and head down the hill towards us, my heart started racing.  My camera tells me he was 35 meters away, but when he filled the viewfinder, it seemed closer!  I do kind of like the perspective of looking up at him from below

We just made it home after a short but wonderful trip to Denali.  This has been a good summer for me and bear photography.  It wasn’t by plan, but it has sure been fun.  Here are more Grizzly Bear photos.

Wild Lynx, Denali National Park, Alaska.

Wow, what a trip this has been!  But the highlight was this lynx – I have been trying unsuccessfully for many, many years to capture an image of a lynx, but a couple of hours ago that all changed. 

It is late and I’m tired, so I will write more when I get back to Seward – but I had to share my excitement!

Yesterday we hit the road to spend a few days in Denali.  It may be a few days until I can post again.  Hopefully my next post will be of a wolverine!  I think it is much more likely the next post will be a moose or hare!

We have finished our updates to our website and have a new section of Puffin photos.  Puffin rock!  We have also updated our section of bear photos.  Come to think of it, bears rock too!

In addition, we were able to migrate our all 4,970 pages of our website from the obsolete FrontPage to a more more appropriate program, Dreamweaver.  What a huge relief!
