#FoxyFriday is taking a short hiatus. Before you gather your pitchforks, we’re hoping that these photos will brighten your day, just like our fox images of Friday’s past.
Yet again, Jill’s luck with spotting wolves continued. A quick stop in Kootenay National Park led us to discovering this wolf on the hunt. Though we weren’t able to capture an image, the wolf was successful in catching a hare after striking out in its (very unrealistic) pursuit of a mountain goat.
Waterton Lakes National Park is amongst the most beautiful areas in Canada and always a surefire bet for a stunning sunrise or sunset. And as we’ve written before, every year we make a point of capturing one of those shots of first or last light from the Waterton River Bridge, just before the gate. It’s a view that never gets old.
Pika are one of the unsung creatures of the high alpine and there is no place in the world that is better to photograph the small mammal than on the slopes of Rock Glacier in Kananaskis. If you’re patient and respectful, you’ll hear their high-pitched squeaks, giving you a hint as to where you should focus your lens.
Finally, this image of a bull elk walking along a sandbar is, to us, the classic Rockies-scape. We were incredibly fortunate to catch a glimpse of this proud bull as he prepared for the impending rut at the end of August.
