Jasper National Park

June 2012. These are the best photos of the wildlife we saw. (By the way, we used a very effective zoom lens and most photos were taken from the safety of the car.):

Bear turning over rocks, looking for grubs:


Bear in a tree, eating leaves:


Brown bear. Most of them are black in Alberta:

Big horned sheep on a hill across from the Columbia Icefields:

You can see the tour buses driving up the Athabasca Glacier:



Baby sheep nursing on the highway:

A smarter baby sheep NOT on the highway:

3 big elk. Yeah, they all look the same to me, too:

Ptarmigan- can you see him?

"What are you lookin' at?"

Which photo is your favorite? Let me know!

I love all the pics, but my fave is the ptarmigan. You caught him hanging out in an environment that his camouflage was made for.

Very cool.
