Although these pictures of caribou/reindeer are not very artistic, I thought I should still share. When traveling the same route through the Yukon two years ago, I did not see a single wild caribou. This time we probably saw as many as 30 - I had to give up trying to photograph them all gracefully by the roadside.

Party Animals
When I first began visiting Brooklyn, I'd marvel at the sight of a squirrel in the city. Such a sighting was infrequent at best back in Salt Lake (one of my earliest memories is of the squirrels that scurried up and down the trunk of the huge tree behind my Aunt Polly's house just south of Ninth and Ninth) and always brought with it a sense of wonderment. I was used to seeing them out in the wild, when we'd go fishing or when we'd picnic in one of the nearby canyons; but seeing these furry little creatures, with their hand-like feet and feet-like hands, in the midst of suburbia... well, let's just write it off as my being easily entertained. 

And though their comic antics still captivate me, as I approach my eighth month in the Big City -- where you can't throw a small stone without hitting a large squirrel -- I now recognize these critters for what they are: bushy-tailed rats. 

Not counting the two honest-to-goodness rats that ambled across our path one night as nydeborah and I walked across a plaza in fashionable Park Slope, we have other wildlife in Brooklyn, too. I'm also not talking about the partygoers who came to our block party and filled our street last Saturday with a full day of eating and drinking and laughing with friends new and old. No, I'm talking about the shadowy creature that nydeborah spied walking across the fence in the backyard after the party was over. "There's a possum in the backyard," she called out.

This didn't surprise me. Last October, we'd awakened one chilly morning to find a soaking wet possum hanging upside down from the back fence, where it had caught one of its hind legs between the pickets. It had rained all night, and the poor creature (looking like the proverbial wet rat) had exhausted itself from trying to escape. Still, it had enough life left in it to hiss and snap at me whenever I got close. 

What needed to be done was clear: someone simply had to lift up the possum to free its leg from between the posts where its body weight had trapped it. Another thing was clear, too: I was not the one to do it.

Instead, we picked up the phone and calledCollapse )

Does anyone know what kind of bug is this?

Published with Fototagger

I saw it in a cone forest in Russia. It was crossing the road, but it was catched for a brief photo-session and then released :-)

Goats, and Marmots at Mt. Evans State Park Colorado
Sunday we went to Mt. Evans and had a good time. We took a lot of animal pictures, but not really any scenery pictures since it seems others do that better than we do. So anyways here are some pictures of mountain goats and stuff.

One weekend of Wildlife
I took these pictures over a month ago, but this is all wildlife I saw and was able to photograph in one weekend. Included is a mule deer on some BLM land near Lake City, Colorado (looking shabby as it was shedding it's winter coat), a Dark-Eyed Junco also near Lake City, Colorado, a Mountain Bluebird at the Red Bridge Campground near Lake City and a Great Blue Heron at Blue Mesa Reservoir near Gunnison, Colorado. Enjoy. :)
