Where the wild things are…..
At our Colorado mountain cabin, we have two game cameras. They are motion triggered, set on a creek near a beaver pond and regularly frequented by wild animals of all sorts. On some weeks, the cameras capure over one thousand photographs. We regularly see moose, elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, bear, bobcat, owls, hawks, great blue heron, beaver, marmot, rabbits and more. We especially enjoy the spring when mama moose, elk and deer show up regularly with their babies.
Here is a sampling of wild visitors, who kindly left their images as they stopped by.
Bull moose, cow moose and babies (including twins)
Bull elk, cow elk and young ones (one set of twins)
Mule Deer and American Pronghorn

Owl, Great Blue Heron, Yellow Bellied Marmot and Cottontail Rabbit
