About the photos:
- Squirrel – this photo was taken at the Grand Canyon. This little guy, and his troupe of performers, were well-trained in charming (or stealing) food from unsuspecting canyon gawkers. This squirrel tried pockets and zippers of this unattended backpack before raising on his hind legs as if he was begging.
- Blue colored bird – I don’t know what kind of bird this is, but there is a pair of them that regularly swoop down into a group of trees in front of our kitchen window. They have a sixth sense for photography and always manage to fly away before I get a shot. Well, until this day. I waited outside for about half an hour and finally caught him picking up a berry or acorn before flying off. It was worth the dozen mosquito bites. Really!
- Single Elk – My husband and I had a discussion about whether this was deer or elk. He says elk, and he might be right because I don’t think deer are quite as stout, and I’m not sure if deer have the tuft of hair on their neck.
- Two Elk – These two wouldn’t budge from the shelter of the cluster of aspen trees. Several of us inched closer to take photos, but we still kept a good thirty feet between us. Well, there was one
idiotbrave person that moved closer, but I stayed back. Getting attacked by elk is not on my bucket list.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a beautiful Wednesday 🙂
