Glacier Park's second largest lake, located on E side of park. Photo taken near Sun Point on a very windy day. This is a camera-hunters paradise.

A rare sighting of this unique Buffalo.

He sure liked that yellow line. Followed it accurately for a long distance.
I think he was off to see the Wizard....

This bull came out of the brush to pose nicely for us. The cow elk in prior post helped us spot him.

Nice when they cooperate like this.

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday!

This wee fawn was hungry and evidently thought this young buck was his mother. Lesson learned as the buck soon chased him away. The fawn fortunately did find his mother soon after. Was amusing to watch.

Not a great shot as I wasn't ready for the fawn to do this.
However it is something unusual.

Something different for April Fool's Day.

Have a great weekend, hopefully without too many tricks.

Caught this bull in mid-chew. He was chowing down on the lush spring growth.

Their velvet antlers always impress me. Quite the story behind their annual growth:

"Only the males have antlers, which start growing in the spring and are shed each winter. Antlers are made of bone which can grow at a rate of 2.5 centimetres (0.98 in) per day. While actively growing, the antlers are covered with and protected by a soft layer of highly vascularised skin known as velvet. The velvet is shed in the summer when the antlers have fully developed. The formation and retention of antlers is testosterone-driven. After the breeding season in late fall, the level of pheromones released during estrus declines in the environment and the testosterone levels of males drop as a consequence. This drop in testosterone leads to the shedding of antlers, usually in the early winter."
Wikipedia

Enjoy a terrific Tuesday!
