Last day for Debe Maxwell contest

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

I am gratitude for having a wife that is a wildlife person.  Yes she made me sell my rifles and I gave up hunting before we got married but it was work it.  I got her a good Nikon camera and lots of lenses that we can catch lots of pictures on our many trips to Yellowstone and other places.  We just got this one outside the cabin in Clark, Colorado.

This Moose calf was just born in Rocky Mountain National Park in June of this year.  We saw him born and this was day three when he was up on all four legs.  New born are always fun to watch, she like to take lots of pictures, lucky it is a digital camera over I be buying lots of film.

Of course I love when she tells me to turn around that she can get the picture from her side of the car like this fox that was fine with her taking a picture of it.  We saw some pups the next day but could not get a great picture of them.

Of course getting a picture in someone backyard of a black bear, this one was a big one.  The backyard was on the market for one million dollars, wonder if the bear came with it?

Of course this is my all time best picture of a mother and son fighting over my discussion with them to move to Denver, I try to explain to them that they would love Denver, Colorado and be a hit.  The younger grizzly was all for it but the mom wanted nothing to with it.

I LOVE your photos and their stories. What an experience to be able to talk and listen to Nature and its inhabitants.

The buyer for the backyard property with a bear may need to negotiate with the bear to let the buyer build their home. A "No Bears Allowed" sign ain't gonna cut it!

Great post. Thank you, Will. 😊

Hi Will... a different kind of "shooting" but one that provides lasting memories.

So you went from shooting with a rifle to her shooting with a camera. I get that!

Hello Will - compromise can definitely lead to all sorts of things including gratitude when the heart is involved.

Your involvement with those critters were better shot through a lens and not a rifle

OH, what a cute post, Will! I had no idea that Sharon made you lay your guns down but, hey, your photo SHOTS will live on forever. I like that better too!

Love the photo of the red fox - we have one that hangs out at our house and I have yet to be able to capture him. Your photo is perfection! Love your stories with each photo too - especially that last one! LOL

Thank you for participating in this month's challenge, Will!

I agree with Ed on this one! Absolutely stunning shots and how special to see a newborn moose calf! It's wonderful you can take advantage of living near nature and wildlife
