After a marathon journey I'm finally back home,and as promised here are some of the pictures I've taken of the wildlife in Colorado.
It's seem that you have a wonderful trip I really enjoyed the beautiful birds in those photos thanks for sharing.
All your pics are wonderful but the one of the buck is absolutely fabulous.
1. Bluebird, 2. Chipmunk, 3.Chickadee,4. ?deer,5. Northern Flicker, 6.Red Tailed Hawk,7. Stellar Jay 8. ?Peewee, 9. Robin
All are lovely. But that bluebird on a blue pole is outstanding.
Great pictures as usual.
Great Avian photography! And the chipmunk is so cute!It reminds me of a long tailed field mouse that lived in my wardrobe for a couple of nights - my cat brought it in and it made it's home in there. I tried to tempt it out with dried cat food (the irony), and it would take a piece and hold it in his fore paws to eat. My cat got in one night and I woke up to a scuffling sound; I found my cat with the mouse huddling underneath her, like she was hoarding it. I lifted Emily off (my cat's name), and the mouse fled to my wardrobe again. Apparently my Dad found Emily relaxing on her side in my room while I was at Uni (earlier this week), and the mouse was nestled against her belly like a kitten..Dad managed to catch the mouse and return it outside.
This is sincerely true. Emily has often been known to retrieve alot of prey - particularly rodents, and not kill them. Sometimes she does though. And she tends to kill birds more often (I guess rodents evoke a more motherly instinct from within her). Her behaviour reminds me very slightly of the wild lioness Kamunyak (if interested, do a Google search), who used to kill/chase off mother oryx, so as to adopt their calves and look after them; to the extent that she would not hunt for fear that other predators would kill her captives while she was away.
Excellent pics, Steve! Particularly liked the one of the deer and raptor.
