One of the resident foxes at the cabin site, looking in excellent condition, almost groomed.
We just caught this eagle as he started to rise on a thermal, by the time we'd jumped out of the car he had risen almost out of sight.
Hunting along the road verges.
There were several of these little bold birds that came in to pick up the crumbs after our lunch stop by the lake.
You can just see the female's legs on the other side of the bush, really not interested.
Female searching for the last of the berries.
Waiting out the rain in a meadow.
Plenty of respect given to this fella as he ambled through the grassland.
This guy was hanging around a couple sharing a large apple, eventually they retreated into their car and he stood on the bonnet hoping for a handout, bold.
The grass is greener, in town.
The first herd we spotted.
Taken through back window of car as we gingerly went past him.
Raspberry and Snow watching a passing bird at the lake edge.
Endemic to Great Sand Dunes (i.e. this is the only place in the world it lives). Read about it and saw it in the film at the visitor centre but didn't expect to see one, then I noticed this little fella scurrying around at high speed, fortunately he stood still long enough to be photographed, about 1cm long.
This one was about 4" long.
Group of five female Mule Deer largely ignoring us except for the alert one looking straight at the camera.
Think these are Pronghorn, one male, two females, quickly snapped through the shuttle bus window.
