deer-running

We were driving down Fall River Road when I saw this Mule Deer running through the rocks, trying to catch up with the rest of the herd.

I’d never taken a photograph of a Mule Deer in motion…I kind of like it. What do you think? I don’t usually see them running.

Easter Daisy

I saw my first Easter Daisy on Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park the other day. What a treat! Spring must be almost here!

These daisies grow in clumps very close to the ground. They are very easy to miss as they are only about 2 high.

Have you seen any Easter Daisies this year? Look for small patches of green with several daisy heads.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

mourningcloak

I saw my first Mourning Cloak butterfly on Black Canyon Trail on Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park the other day….in the exact same spot that I saw it last year! It must love something about that particular area.

This butterfly was a bit elusive so it was difficult to photograph it. Its wings look a bit ragged as it landed on the tree.

Have you ever seen a Mourning Cloak butterfly?

1antlerelk1

We woke up the other morning and there were 5 Bull Elk having breakfast in our yard. They looked like lawn mowers, just plowing along eating everything in sight!

But this particular one caught my eye. He had lost his old antlers and only one had begun to grow back.

I’ll have to keep an eye out for him. I wonder when the other antler will start to grow. I’d never seen this before, have you?

This is one of my favorite views of the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park from Black Canyon Trail on Lumpy Ridge.

It’s pretty white with all the snow that we’ve had this winter!

mountainbuttercup

Pretty soon the pretty, yellow Mountain Buttercups will be blooming again in Rocky Mountain National Park. We are all so ready for spring!

You can find these small wildflowers in meadows and rocky slopes in alpine and subalpine areas. They bloom from June to August, so it’s almost time!

Get ready!
