Grand Tetons have wildlife, too

Although I went to the Grand Tetons expecting beautiful scenery, I was pleasantly surprised to also find interesting wildlife. I was really hoping to see a bull Moose on my trip, and the first thing I saw as I entered the park was two moose. At a distance, I thought I had seen two females, like this one.

A closer look revealed that one of the two was actually a young bull moose which can be seen by its small antlers.

Not quite what I was hoping for; guess I’ll have to wait until my next visit to get a shot of an adult Bull Moose with large antlers.

I also saw several bucks beside the road.

I missed a great shot of a fox the day before when it crossed the road in front of me because I had my camera turned off, but I was amazed when I was greeted by this fox walking down the road heading straight for me. Unfortunately, the shot through the window was almost unrecognizable, but I had time to jump out of the car and get this shot as it plodded steadily down the road with a meal for her pups.

I was still more impressed by the awesome scenery than by the wildlife, but it’s obvious the two are inseparable.

  1. Fantastic photograph of the back view of that fox Loren. Aren’t moose ungainly creatures? I saw one on a visit to Canada once – they are rather lumpy creatures I think.

What do you think?
