I hope you weren't too close to that mama bear with her adorable cubs. Great pics, as usual.
Thanks, Jennifer. I appreciate you looking in.
I wouldn't want to encounter that Mama Bear and her cubs on the trail.
I sure hope that shot was taken with a long-distance lens, Rob!
10X zoom, Tonia. We weren't close enough to ever feel threatened.
Beautiful. That turkey's beak looks sharp. We have brush turkeys in our backyard, but they're timid. No bears though - just the occasional snake.
Thanks for dropping by and commenting. An "occasional snake" in the backyard is one too many.
Wow! What a great collection of images. Have you been hording them and just now posting them, or did you actually see all this wildlife along the trail in one walk? It's like walking through a wild animal park!
Our hen turkeys never act like the hen you showed in your image; she looks like the dinosaur knockoff that she is!
No hoarding involved, Scott; we encountered all these during one hike. That was the most aggressive hen we've ever encountered, though Becca seemed pretty unperturbed by her.
