Hi diane;) Are those the same elk as Betsy posted about this week? I love the brown bear licking BBQ sauce. Lovely critters. Have a good day.

These are wonderful pictures of the critters you saw on our side of the world. Although Betsy had an elk picture very similar to yours, I like your picture of the bear enjoying the BBQ.

Love your animal pictures. We just found out yesterday that the largest elk in Rocky Mountain National Park has been poached and died on the grounds of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. So sad!

Oh my goodness, those are fantastic photos of all that wildlife Diane. What a thrill it must have been to see them.

OMG Diane -- Have you thought about going to work for the National Geographic ;>)....seriously, your photos are on a par with any professional wildlife photographer's work!

Oops I just realized that I cited a magazine that definitely doesn't have "International" in the title -- if you're not familiar with it, I'm sure you get the idea. I have NO idea of its circulation base!!

Even the brown bear has the favoured 'water bottle' behind him. Cute!
As usual, just gorgeous!

I do love the little squirrel. I remember being so excited the first time I saw one.

Whoa! At first when I saw the bear - I thought it was a "prop"! But nooo..he's real! And real big it looks like!
I think some of the best travel partners are the creatures..great and small!

Hi Diane! Wonderful collection!! I think I saw that bear already some years ago in Alaska... ;))

Recovering from the flu and other viruses, Blogtrotter Two is looking at views, palaces and gardens in Algiers... Enjoy and have a great weekend!
