Wyoming Wildlife Large and Small
When people visit Wyoming they want to find the big wildlife, the bison, the elk, the moose, and of course the bears. I love to see the large mammals, they are always so thrilling. But there is Wyoming wildlife, large and small.
The moose are probably my favorite large animal to find. They can be unpredictable, graceful, and goofy all at the same time.
The other morning was cold, and the river was foggy, which I absolutely love. A cow moose came to the rivers edge, which was an amazing photo opportunity.
She had a drink, then crossed the river.
The misty river.
The bison have come back south, which I like. They are done with the rut, so no fantastic action shots anymore. But, they are still nice to see.
This young calf was unusual. I have never seen one in this transition phase. I’m sure it’s common as they go from red, to dark brown. But it was a first for me.
The small wildlife are just as much fun to watch. This super cute red squirrel was on the trail we hiked the other day.
And I found this badger sunning himself. They may be mean, but I think they are cute.
Sometimes it pays to look for the little animals, instead of always the big guys.
