View Full Version : Sheep, Bears and Eagles

I just took a little drive for work from Northern BC to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory. As usual there were a number of animals on the way. I didn't bother taking any shots of the buffalo as I already have a number of pictures of them. I did see a coyote but didn't manage to get a great shot. In Northern BC I came across these Stone Sheep.

They even had little babies with them.

There were a number of black bears along the way. This time of year they are 4 legged lawnmowers. They hardly look up as they make their way along the grass filled ditches.

I managed to see two sets of a mother bears with two little cubs. The cubs are so cute when they are this young.

When I got to Whitehorse I found a bunch of bald eagles. They seemed to be getting harassed by the ravens every time they fly around.

so where's that coyote picture??

great series. you've got an eye for what I call the Audubon approach - including behavior in your portraits. makes all the difference.

fabulous set! Love the sharpness and variety. My fave are the cutie bears too, but those eagle shots are also way striking.

you know, if you changed this to Rams, Bears & Eagles you could start an NFL thread.

Great set. I agree the peek-a-boo is very cute.

Yes, peek-a-boo shot I think is the best.

Nice set all around!! I have to say that "peek-a-boo" is just awesome. Great timing!
