So what's cuter than a bear cub way up high in a pine tree? Well that would be 2 bear cubs way high up in a pine tree! We hung out with these two cubs for about 2 1/2 hours before mom showed up after a successful kill. Then about another 1/2 hour with mom while she was nursing them. #yellowstonebearcubs #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonepark #yellowstonewildlife #yellowstonebears #yellowstonenationalparkwildlife

Here's a nice photo of a Fox in the Grand Teton National Forest. I was so happy to have found this little beauty. There were two animals that I really really wanted to make sure I found on this trip. A badger and a fox. Luckily I was able to find both. We hung out with this fox for about 20 min. as it hunted right next to the road. I also got a cool photo of it carrying a rat after a successful hunt that I'll share later. It was so cool to witness the hunt and catch. #grandtetonnationalpark #grandtetons #grandtetonwildlife #fox #grandtetonfox

This is a juvenile bald eagle that we found in a rest area near a dam view pullout just outside Jackson Hole, WY. We thought we were just going to check out the dam and got sidetracked by this gorgeous eagle. We thought is was a lucky find :) #jacksonholewyoming #jacksonhole #Jacksonholewildlife #wyomingwildlife

Here is a sweet photo of a Mama "cow" Moose and her newborn calf. Mama was pretty worn out and did not stand up while we were there that day. The following day she was up and about with the calf. Photo was taken of them way down in a marshy area of the Grand Teton National Park. This calf is less than 24 hours old in this photo and was just learning to walk an was very wobbly...Too cute! #grandteton #grandtetonnationalpark #grandtetonwildlife #babymoose #newbornmoose #moose

Watched this black bear sow nurse her two cubs after she returned from a successful hunt earlier in the day. She sent them both up a tree and left them there for just over 2 hours while she went up the hill and killed a new born elk calf. Pretty amazing to witness!!! #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonebear #yellowstonewildlife #yellowstoneblackbear #yellowstonebearcubs

Got some cool photos of this young bobcat yesterday. She hasn't really mastered her hunting skills yet but that didn't keep her from trying over & over. We watched her stalk and pounce 4 times without any luck before laying down in the shade to cool off a bit. Please feel free to share if you like :)

Took a couple of friends out to look for the Long-eared Owls before heading over to the Tucson Rodeo on Sunday. So hard to find these little guys and even harder to get a clear shot of them. 2 days & 4 hours and I only got about 16 photos. Out of those I only kept 3 photos. 1 of them sitting on a branch in the open and 2 photos of one flying through an opening above the trees just before it pealed off and dove back into the thick trees. When it comes to wildlife, you take what they give you and hope you get something good. Hope you like these photos and feel free to share with your owl lover friends :)

A couple of cool photos of a Gray Hawk taken out at the DM a few weeks ago on a cloudy day. This beautiful hawk will show up in southern Arizona starting around March and hang aground until September after they have raised their young. Then it's back to Mexico until the next year.

A Wilson's Snipe. Not something you see often in the Tucson area. This is the first time I've seen this bird and was also lucky & patient enough to get a nice photo of it right at sunset.

Took my first trip out to Whitewater Draw this weekend. It did not disappoint! A little glimpse of the Yellow-headed Blackbirds putting on one heck of a show at sunset. Best viewed in fullscreen, select HD and crank up your volume. Enjoy the show😉

Went out Friday after work looking for wildlife. We found this female bobcat just as she got out of a pond soaking wet. Looks like she went in after a duck or rat and came out empty handed.

I've been trying to find this American Bittern for over 2 years now with no luck. Last weekend...JACKPOT!!! Another photographer told me that it was a short way down the path so I headed that way. I ended up spending around 1 1/2 hrs. shooting this little guy. Towards the end, I mention to the group of photographers there that I was going to position my self for he best possible lighting and pray it would fly my way. Just to get a clear shot of a Bettern in the reeds is hard but in flight is amazing. Hope you enjoy the photo and feel free to share if you wish.

Working in the front yard and kept seeing a couple of butterflies fluttering about so I went and grabbed my camera. My butterfly expert tells me this is a Pipevine Swallowtail with a ton of pollen on it.
