Travel Photography Featured photos taken in USA and tagged as animals
A red fox listening for prey. Anthony told us red fox sightings are very rare. We got lucky plus he stayed around longer enough for everyone to get their photos.
Bison herd, Yellowstone River.
This young buck decided to stop and pose for a few photographers, luckily I was in a prime spot with my 18-200 Canon lens to capture this majestic animal in nature.
Snow Geese Lift-Off
Spotted this wild cat in the hills of the USA's upper NW.
Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
These were just off Hwy 1 in Northern CA, still part of the Redwoods in Humbolt County.
a biker startles up some ducks one evening along Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline, Illinois.
These fellows are so used to the tourists, they don't really pay much attention to you, so you can get pictures of them quite easily.
These are at the Edgar I. Brown Homestead in South Dakota. It is the only prairie dog town with white prairie dogs!
We saw a lot of wild donkey's in Custer State Park, South Dakota, including this fellow
This guy was fishing in the river for spawning Salom. You can see the dead salmon already spawned out on the banks around him.
He looks quite ferocious and dangerous, doesn't he? Actually, this, supposedly at least 50 year old, alligator has lost both of his eyes in fights against peers and now he is quite helpless, at least, as far as humans in boats are concerned. I remember seeing this alligator first years ago. Then, he still had one eye but life must have been rough since. I was not expecting to ever meet the old fellow again, but our airboat ran right into him as soon as we got into the grassy part of Everglades. The boat captain would endearingly call the gator "Old Man" and try to persuade him to get out of the boat's way (which, after some haggling, he unwillingly did). Anyway, I hope to meet him again the next time I visit Everglades. Good hunting until then, Old Man!
Just look at all those "shiny" eyes and smiling faces...
Florida Everglades: almost stepped on this fellow by mistake to take a better look at the swamp.
