Domestic Turkeys in Chiapas

Turkeys

Just returned on Monday from a 10 day birding trip to Chiapas.  Birds and culture and archaeological sites.  Great trip organized by Chiapas Birding Adventures.   I love to take pictures of the domestic animals, and they are everywhere!  Most are not constrained.  Even in our hotel close to downtown San Cristobal de las Casas we were woken up every morning early by a crowing rooster and a gobbling turkey who lived in the yard next door.

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.
