The Quest for Survival
The photo prompt from The Daily Post this week is Quest. As I mentioned last week, right now all the animals are preparing for winter, it’s the quest for survival.
These little chipmunks were stuffing their cheeks as full as they could with rose hips from the wild roses. They were so much fun to watch.
And of course the moose. They are all about survival of the fittest, and making new baby moose. Even the cows get feisty. They seem to think the bull only gets one girl, I’m sure he doesn’t agree with this view.
These two photos were taken by a friend, and fellow photographer. I saw this happen but I wasn’t ready to shoot as I was looking behind me. It lasted for about 10 seconds and my friend was so kind to send me a few of her photos. Sonia Reid is a painter who lives in Jackson Hole, and takes photos to use as studies for her paintings. Check out her paintings at SoniaReid.com, I like her work a lot.
Next 2 photos from Sonia Reid.
This is a motion blur shot of the bull running after a smaller bull. Never, ever make the mistake and think these guys are slow and docile. And yes, I was moving quickly out of the way.
And I just really love this shot. It’s like they posed so perfect for me.
And the 52 week photo challenge this week is Handmade. This falling down old cabin is one of my favorite places to get photos. These cabins were all handmade. Every log was hand hewn, everything was built by hand from the ground up.
Have a great Tuesday friends. We keep pushing back our day to leave, so now we are looking at Wednesday. YaY!!
