They are just SO majestic... I could sit and stare for hours.... as long as I was in a safe spot!

Aren't they amazing?

One of our photo assignments was "Silhouettes"

I thought that humorous as a few weeks before I had tried to take one of my son, and thought I had succeeded - and then when it was an assignment , I couldn't do what I wanted to do.... Go figure right?

The bear is what I submitted for my assignment
He was at the Wild Animal Sanctuary, and was under a bridge. I like the shadow.
And then I edited it ( a lot) to give it a dramatic look.
Not my favorite - but - I tried

And then the next day ( after the assignment was due)
This beauty posed for me.

And I looked up the hill
and BAM!! THIS was there - I wish it had been there a day before

Good thing is - I love to take photos!

Wild Animal Sanctuary

In Colorado, there is a place called the Wild Animal Sanctuary - and I LOVE it there.

One of my long distance Camera Lenses broke, and I had to send it in to be fixed, so I used an older lens, that I haven't had much practice on.  I find that going out and really focusing on using that one lens really helps me get the feel of it.... so 500 photos later.... I love it again.

Here are some of my favorite shots of the day at the Sanctuary


Check out the look on that guys face!!

He says to the top lion "Seriously , dude, what did you eat????"


These two were just too cute

And then their tongues - oh wow - I would run!



Look at how intent he is - He made it into the pool, now I think he is playig Bear Ninja Games in his mind and trying to figure out how to get through the tire!

And he says - THAT is MY hat!!! I dare you to take it from me!!

See - Lions and Tigers and Bears - Oh My!
