week 6 – # 47 A Pair Of…

I have been away on a trip to Wyoming and a little of Montana and have falling behind in my postings.  My apologies.  I will try to catch up in the next couple of days.

That being said, on to the theme for week 6 – a pair of.   This really gives you a wide opening of things to use for this shot, but after being in Yellowstone with all the wildlife, coming up with a pair of something became both easy and difficult.  Hmm, which to chose, Elk, Bison, or Antelope (Pronghorns).  The Bison really didn’t “couple” up while I was photographing them.  Now I did get some young males practicing the rut, and the Pronghorns were usually in a herd not a “couple or pair”.  So that leaves the Elk.  And then do I pick the mother and daughter elk or a couple.   Such difficult decisions when you only get to pick one.

So the decision is……  the elk couple….

  1. Nice shot Sue. It is so much more enjoyable to shot animals with a camera rather than a gun. I can say this because I used to hunt deer in my younger years and now I find it a lot more enjoyable through the lens of my camera rather than the site of a gun.

  2. Great selection Sue. Beautiful shot. I absolutely love the Tetons & Yellowstone. I had an opportunity to spend some time there 3 years ago, but it wasn’t enough time. Never is. It was my 4th trip there. Hopefully not my last.
