We took a spur-of-the-moment field trip to the National Bison Range today, which is about an hour away from us. Got some cool pictures, including these white-tailed deer with the Mission Mountain range in the background. In addition to the deer, we also saw bison, pronghorn antelope, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, even some turtles. I think I got a pretty good picture of some pronghorn, but it's on Rick's camera. He and Nichelle both got some really good ones of the turtles in the pond. We only saw the bison from really far away this time. The upper part of the loop road is still closed because of ice. I hope we can get back in May when the entire road is open. We walked through the nature trails by the river and saw lots more birds. I also found a really cool picture book about bears in the visitor center, so I'll blog about that soon. Rick always has 3-day weekends, so it's nice to get out and do something on Mondays. We hadn't been on an official field trip in awhile, so it was about time we did.
This probably sounds odd, but it's so strange to reconcile your picture (and "knowing" you through your posts and comments and such) with the photographer of such a breathtaking nature shot. You are very talented : )ReplyDelete
Beautiful and KLo is right - a lot of talent there in those fingers of yoursReplyDelete
