Rocky Mountain National Park

Mountain peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park. This year the snow was much reduced over last year. Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 600mm f/4 VRII.

 

I’ve been very slow getting pictures posted lately.  I took my annual trip to Colorado for the National Mourning Dove Task Force Meeting and made another swing the Rocky Mountain National Park.  The snow was much reduced this year with temperatures in the sixties some days.  We did manage to catch a little snow on the last days there.

A very cooperative gray jay on the trail to Emerals Lake. If I had food....he would have been my best friend! Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 300mm f/4.

 

The nicest mule deer buck I have seen at the park. This guy was hanging out with a large group of does. Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 600mm f/4 VRII.

 

A bull elk hangs out in an Estes Park front yard. It seemed at times that there were more elk in town than in the park. Nikon D800E with AFS Nikkor 200-400mm f/4 VRII.

 

This pine squirrel or chickaree was super cooperative while walking up to Emerald Lake. Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 300mm f/4.
