Wildlife on the Trails

In this post I’d like to share some photos of wildlife that I’ve encountered. While I find it easier to photograph still life there is something especially exciting about capturing the fleeting image of a living thing. Here are some examples of my recent encounters. All were taken on Boulder’s Shanahan Ridge  and Shadow Canyon Trails…

This handsome coyote was spotted near the South Mesa Trail head

 

Rattlesnakes are always exciting, especially the young ones

 

Leaping Lizard…what is this? Help me folks

 

The big bees are busy…

 

as are the Fritillary Brushfooted Butterflies
