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

Felicia said…
beautiful majestic animals.

we always call them "animal jams".
Cheryl @ TFD said…
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.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the campsites ...u get this beachfront view, so peaceful. I really enjoy beach walking, it is like you can hear yourself thinking, u can shake out all the silliness and just be YOU! Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise! Tell all my loved ones hi, I miss them. Lately, I have been really miss my Grandma, and my Great Aunt. Hope they are treating u good??! Life is good. Bring Spri…
