Bear!

Bear!

Taken from the car near Moose, Wyoming just outside Grand Teton National Park.  You can tell when wildlife is spotted because of stopped cars.  You are not allowed to get near wildlife.  In this case, this young bear was quite close to the road climbing trees eating aspen leaves.  Pretty quickly park people come along to politely keep the people far enough away from the animals — in this case kept people from climbing the hill to get to the bear…  I stayed in my car.  Not a great shot, but fun to see a bear!

Tetons in Snow with Pronghorn Antelope.  That little spot a little left of center on the berm?  That’s the pronghorn.

Tiger Swallowtail and spider

Posted in Animals, Hill Country on April 16th, 2012 by judy

Today’s picture isn’t going to win any prizes — neither for the photographer nor for the butterfly — but it tells a story. Many butterflies if you see them close up have damage to their wings. This one is about as ratty as I’ve seen. This makes us think about what a time the migrating butterflies have on their long trips. I couldn’t find out if the Tiger Swallowtail does migrate, but this one has been through something. The little green spider was able to make the butterfly fly by lunging toward it, but the butterfly just came back to the same flower to feed. Wimberley, Texas
