Home, Home on the Range...

We came upon this amazing scene as we crossed over the boarder from Canada to the US on our way to Glacier Natl Park. I'd imagine that scene hasn't changed much for a couple hundred years!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Bighorn Sheep

We saw plenty of Bighorn Sheep on our travels through the Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada. They were always curious initially and then ignored us and went about their business. We didn't see any large males, mostly groups of females like this one with a few juveniles mixed in.
It is now Christmas Eve here, so Merry Christmas to those of you that celebrate and a wonderful holiday season to all!

Wary Red Fox

Look who came to visit me during golf the other day, this beautiful red fox! We actually saw three different foxes that day. Unfortunately they have learned to scavenge food from the golf carts - we heard in the pro shop that they will also nab your cell phone or gps if you're not careful, but you can get those back when they discover that they're not a good snack! We also saw one of them chomping on a squirrel so they still know how to hunt and take care of themselves, yay! People need to stop feeding them, it's not healthy for them and they shouldn't be so comfortable around people, either...
Anyway, hope you are enjoying your week everyone!

The Big Reach.........

It is great fun to watch sloths as they navigate their way through the trees, it's truly amazing how slowly they really move! This guy was no exception, it must have taken at least five minutes for him to reach over to that next branch and move a few feet... In fact he is so slow that he missed #InternationalSlothDay  yesterday!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and be sure to go outside to enjoy some nature, it's amazing out there...

Soggy Moose

As many of you know, while travelling through wildlife country and you see some cars pulled over on the side of the road with people wandering around, it is always a good idea to check it out - most of the time it is a wildlife siting. This time was no different and is the only way we would have spotted this moose.He was hiking through dense trees, courting a female, and not visible from the road. It's amazing how easy he made it look to meander through that thick brush with those antlers. It definitely made our day to encounter this beautiful animal...
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Almost Monarch Time Again...

The monarch butterflies should be headed our way soon if they are not already here. I'm looking forward to seeing them this fall while they spend their winter months visiting the area...
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Cluster of Bats

We found a couple of different types of bats clustered in some open caves (more like an over hang or hollowed out rock) during a short hike to see Iracema Falls (Brazil) near one of our hotels. Not sure what type of bats these are. The falls were nothing special, but the bats were fun to see. Look at those teeth on the one guy mid-yawn! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...

Curious...

This young White-fronted Capuchin Monkey from from Brazil was watching us with great interest. I think he was mostly interested to see if we had any bananas that he could steal and chomp on, though!!! Look at those huge eyes, wouldn't you give him your banana if you had one? Have a wonderful week everyone!

Breath of Fresh Air

This guy came up for a quick breath of air (and maybe to say hello to us don't you think?) From Waikiki Beach in Hawaii on our recent trip. Happy Hump Day everyone!

Fetch

This puppy was so full of life and energy the day we encountered her at the beach. She would charge into the surf as often as her friend would throw that tennis ball.  The high surf and big waves never dissuaded her until her ball finally disappeared and she couldn't find it - she kept an eye on the surf for a good 10 minutes hoping she would catch site of it again... She was so much fun to watch that afternoon!

Have a fabulous week everyone and I hope you find some pure joy in something you do like this wonderful puppy did - a good lesson for us all!

Happy #Sundog  Sunday and #fidofriday !!!
