Rocky Mountain National Park

30 10 2008

We spent this past Sunday photographing wildlife and scenery in Rocky Mountain National Park. These are some of the best images I shot. We were astounded by the number of animals out in the open, seemingly unafraid, and easy to photograph….at least a couple hundred elk, two coyotes, several mule deer, many beautifully-colored Black-billed Magpies, and dozens of small, colorful Rainbow Trout at Sprague Lake. On the way out of the park, we stopped to photograph a herd of elk comprised of 52 females and 7 males. With my 80-400 Nikkor VR lens, I was able to get full frame shots of the elk. The weather was amazing, the light golden, and the photographic opportunities endless!

The first bird is a Steller’s Jay — I am hoping to help identify the other bird shortly.

Those are fabulous photos. I love Rocky Mountain National Park. First time I visited I was astounded at the wildlife variety and numbers.
