wildlife in Jasper National Park





For you wildlife folks who normally get out there and take photographs of animals, birds, anything that moves ... you have my thoughts, well wishes, pat on the back, whatever you want to call it. I guess i just don't have the patience to wait. I always seem to get the butt shots, not the face view I would be hoping for... I want to get the shot and move on. I don't want to wait. You should have seen the crew of people stopped to get these elks photograph. It was wild!! animal paparazzi? traffic jam?!! rubbernecking?!! what else do folks call that kind of mess??! 

Little did this crew of elk know that just a few moments ago the hubby & I were eating elk ...sorry guys. don't hate!!! Beth ( :

Nothing is cuter than moose caboose, unless it be elk!

I agree with Eileen, and the photo will help keep that sighting in your mind. Great place to visit!

Hey, Beth, even from the butt side, I could recognize the elk, so no problem. Always fun to see the wildlife.

Nice getting to see some of the wild life. Never been there.

Yes it is sometimes not easy to get the best candid shot of wildlife. You took some great shots that included some nice rustic fencing. Eating elk does not matter to me. It has been years since I had some.

Seeing elk or mountain goats in that park are one of the many pleasures of the place.

I guess I see more wildlife and I do pretty scenery like you do. Unfortunately it's usually squirrels, add birds. I guess we take pictures of what we see. You're lucky to have all that pretty scenery to photograph.
I would definitely have been one of the rubberneckers, but only long enough to pull over and try to get a good photograph. I've seen this type of road block a plenty in Yellowstone- but that's what everyone is there for- to get to see beautiful animals, up close and personal! Well, except for bears..I tend to stay in the car when we spot one of those. Have a super day!
Love the wildlife and the fences.

Fabulous photographs of the elk and the land, oh my! Awesome!

How exciting to see these Elk. I'm a bit more (patient) I guess as I would have waited for just the right shot but hey there is nothing wrong with these at all. I've eaten Elk & Deer so I don't judge you.

Hi There, Seeing the wildlife in your photos reminded me of our trip to Yellowstone. We had more fun (including traffic jams) watching and taking pictures of the wildlife there. Fun!!!

You'll 'recognize' my blog post today...
Hugs,
Betsy
Wildlife photography is a real skill, and you have to wait ages, so don't be so hard on yourself!! I am a terrible wildlife photographer!! xx

You made me laugh with your comment about only getting butt shots! lol! Patience, dear, patience. That is what is needed around animals! Birds, too, for sure. Love your shots of the neat fence!

Mama Zen said…
Ha! I get a lot of butt shots, too!
Fabulous animals to see! Photos of wildlife rarely turn out as you want them to. :-)

When I was young I thought it would be cool to be a wildlife photographer. Now I put out bird feeders and take pictures through the window!
When most of your pics are squirrels and backyard birds, the big beasts are irresistible!

Your second shot is great! I'm not very patient with wildlife either. They always run away when I ask if they could turn and smile at the camera.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;
