The fine folks of the Front Range Wildlife Photographers Facebook group had whet my appetite for some more wildlife photography of my own again, this time with stories and pictures of bull moose at the Brainard Lake Recreation Area. So Thursday morning I headed up in the hopes that the persistent rain we'd been having would go away, but the moose wouldn't.
Red Rock Lake to check for moose there. Negative. But the lingering low clouds made for a nice scene.
Mountain Man Outdoor Store in Nederland was opening right as I got into town and I was able to grab one there, which ended up getting a lot of use as I traipsed through underbrush. Thanks, John!
Indian Peaks, and wildflowers were in bloom along the shore.
white-crowned sparrow hopped around me expectantly for a little while, until he figured out I wasn't going to feed him.
