Originally thought this was a Mule Deer, but Ken enlightened me that it was an Elk. Thanks for the clarification, we don’t get many elk in Brooklyn…

After we were forced to move campsites in the middle of the night by park rangers (Patrick and Jordan), we kept seeing glowing eyes in the distance. Eventually, the eyes got closer and we saw this little buck circling our campsite. Even at dawn, he was still stalking…

  1. excellent photos oohoh so excellent
    and what great action shots….

    Just one comment
    that which you call a mule deer, are really elk
    with their large white bottoms… easy to identify, once you know
    the natives called them Wapiti

    and those shots of the collard coyote… very good and the shadow of the arch,
    and the eagle ooh my
    what a lens…

    Excellent

  2. Ken – Thanks for the heads up, the ‘mule deer’ comment will be amended! Glad you liked the pics. If you want any prints, let me know and I’ll send them over in full res.

    Hope all is well out west…

  3. Those are the best set of scenic pics you’ve taken. Every picture is amazing and seems to tell as story. You have real talent, what an eye! There are about 30 pics that are frame-worthy. Awesome! the waterfalls, the eagle, the ghost claws…wow!

  5. Only thing I’m disappointed at is that you didn’t name img.2394. Great set, but it doesn’t seem like there was a bad pic to be taken from the look of things. Certain places make it easy. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
