I took this pic while riding. You can see my shadow at the bottom of the pic.
Her name is Petunia and I met her in Blowing Rock, NC. We had a meaningful relationship but it ended badly.
I’m fortunate to live in the foothills of Alberta so I get to see a lot of wildlife on my rides. This guy was only about two minutes away from my place.
And some of the other pictures here are outstanding. I love the shots of the Ospreys.
A few more of Alberta's wildlife
I extremely dislike surprising these big fellow while out hiking. Outright dangerous. Cougars are right up there on my fear list. It's "claimed" that for every one you see, perhaps 10 have seen you.
This is a pure Panamanian coyote. One of the places we stayed in Pedasi took him in as a pup. He wouldn’t let you get too near but he did stick around enough to get pictures.
Cool. What was he like with the 'owners'?
This answer your question :) He came and went on his own schedule and was very gentle with their little girl. I think they found him when he was super young. The only thing that we had to watch was that he’s a thief. Leave something lying around and he would take it....lol.
All of these are in South Dakota. I've already posted some of these in another thread. I gotta get out more.
All great pictures, I’m partial to your shot of the goat!
Somewhere in South West Wisconsin.
A small turnout parking lot some miles outside West Yellowstone.
The issue for me is what camera do you bring? Do you the take the DSLR or go more compact? Weight over convenience. And I never take out my phone. To me there’s nothing more disappointing than thinking you got the great shot and find out later it’s fuzzy. I’m an enthusiastic amateur but I always travel with at least a proper camera in my pack. I always chuckle to myself when I see people holding up their iPads trying to get a shot of the mountains in the distance. When they show people at home they can say “that big blurry thing in the middle there, that’s a mountain”.
That's a great photo - but I'd be looking for momma!
I agree - difficult decision. All the photo's I've posted on this thread have been taken on my Nikon AW130 rugged camera. I have a other camera's but the convenience of a rugged camera that I can put in my pocket trumps everything else when riding a motorcycle - at least so far.
I recently submitted some photo's to the Motorcycle Mojo magazine calendar competition and was told initially that they were not good enough despite they technically met the requirements. I had a really useful exchange of emails explaining that essentially the lens on these rugged cameras is the weak link and therefore the images aren't good enough for the requirements of printing a calendar. So on my last long ride to Telegraph Creek in BC, I planned on taking a camera with a better lens. But in the final analysis, due to space, I just took the old Nikon. I got some decent photo's though and submitted a couple to the competition - not expecting anything better than an 'also ran'. However, one was selected - this one;
A few days ago, I was at the Edmonton bike show and talked to the folk at the magazine stand. Apparently there was a dispute at the office as people who liked my photo had to duke it out with the folk who understood its technical limitations. Anyway, it made the final cut.
My point is, there's more to it that the specific camera. Sorry - this was a bit of a hijack!

Your others are nice.....but I REALLY like this one!!!
She was there off to the left.
Great pictures everyone, I'm curious what camera's and what lenses are you using.
Others might be interested as well....
