Geocaching, photography... and animals.

Black bear cub at John Sayer's Cache.

 

I shot this from inside the car with the window open part way. It was still a particularly risky photo, because the sow could not be seen, but could easily have been inside the car before we could have reacted.

Out on a hike and placing a cache a couple weeks ago, in winter range habitat for a variety of animals, we ran across several herds of bighorn sheep. They weren't too concerned about us.

I think my log on this cache is the longest I've ever written, but that's a topic for another thread. In any case, I saw this girl on the way in:

And at the Elephant Seal Overlook Earthcache. They were relatively far away, so it stretched the camera I had to the limits. I need to bring a better camera next time, but that is a subject for the dSLR thread.

We hid a letterbox on Sunday, not published yet, and met this beautiful orange butterfly (Argynnis paphia).

Can anyone tell me what kind of snake this is? 

It's approximately 4-6 feet long and was seen in northeastern Illinois.

My guess is northern water snake.

Not venomous, if that was your concern.

I caught a rare dragon one day:

He was facing off against a mortal enemy:

In all seriousness, I don't catch many animal photos while caching...but I have a few, like a rabbit:

a caterpillar:

I wouldn't say I went to Kruger National Park to cache - the earthcaches and virtuals there were a bonus.   But we saw the Big 5 and were able to include this game as part of our experience.

Seeing Hippos at the Saint Lucia Wetlands is not difficult.   When arrived we heard them for most of the night - the next day they were resting in the wetlands before heading back to town, where they walk the streets.
