Desert bighorn mountain sheep - taken at Colorado National Monument. The funny thing was we stopped at the very first pullout/viewpoint at the East entrance to the park and this group was chilling out. We hadn't even made it to the visitors' center, and this was the best wildlife spotting of the day.

Best regards,
Chris

BubbaChris, how convenient -- as if they were waiting for your visit. They are amazing animals. A great capture.

Doneat54, a very fine sunset. It rivals some of ours here in Arizona.

Very nice!

I had a couple of smaller ones playing around in my front yard a couple of days ago.

Messing around with focus stacking and Helicon software. Could only get in about 7 shots before the wind blew the leaves off the Jeep.

Great pictures Ronstar! What a beautiful home you have as well.

Ronstar, that almost looks like the beginnings of a western nativity scene.
A little too close to home tho.

AZflowers 11-15-2021 10:49 AM

Street, some very good shots. You were very close -- are they accustomed to you?

Thanks! I have found newborn fawns laying next to the house on several occasions. The moms drop them off, go about their day, and come back for them at night. One of the babies got pelted by a hail storm, started bleating loudly and ran off into the woods for shelter.

We used to get that at our last house. The preferred spot was between the firewood rack and the back wall of the house.

Nice! Ours are usually between a bush and our front wall or against a retaining wall planter

Yes, they are use to me being around so they know they are fairly safe. Anytime of day I go to the ranch it is normal to see wildlife like that.

Thanks for sharing the fawn pictures!! Those are fantastic!

TOOLMAN's impressive macro work on the last page inspired me to go out and terrorize the local bugs again. This guy was sitting on the bedroom window this morning:
