This week the Dogwood 52 prompt is, Photographers choice. I thought, oh easy, I can do that no sweat. Pffftttt. Unless you have a ton of photos you like, or can’t really narrow it down to one single image.
In the end I went with this one. I worked on this photo forever. I tried different texture layers, different crops, just different everything. I think that’s why I picked it for this week.
I couldn’t decide which I liked the most. This is the same photo, only cropped in more portrait style, and with no texture layer added.
Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, MT
We are currently boondocking about 15 minutes from West Yellowstone. We wanted to stay here again, so we could visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, MT.
We went to the Grizzly and Wolf center a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Obviously I would rather see animals in their natural habitat, but I also understand the role places like this have in the world. Educating the public on bear activity, bear safety, and the lives they lead is top priority at the center. The bears, and wolves who live at the discovery center, are there for various reasons. The bears were either orphaned because their mom got in trouble, or they are bears that repeatedly got in trouble themselves. They would no doubt have been put down, if places like this didn’t take them in.
The other day I was up, and walking on the river early in the morning. It’s my favorite way to start the day. Early morning sunrise, quite, and the sound of the river. Usually I get to see wildlife of some kind, and on that day it was Ravens. They are always a favorite, and on this day I received a gift from raven.
I came across about 6 birds in the trees. This one was very talkative.
He also stretched so nice for me. I love to see all their feathers like this.
