Occassionally our game cams get lucky. Like this footage of a fox at our JE Canyon Ranch in SE Colorado.
By now, we all know what the fox says. But what about what the fox needs?
Food, Cover and Space.
Mid-September through October is prime season for elk rut, when bulls seek to attract cows into their harems. This is done by locking antlers with other bulls in a show of dominance. These battles are usually more of a show than an actual fight, since fighting is energy intensive. They aim to show off their antlers, strength, and musky odor to win over as many cows as possible. You may also hear the strange, high pitched sound of a bull elk bugle. The bugle both advertises fitness to cows in the area and warns other bulls to stay away. Elk in rut may be more aggressive than usual, so observe their behavior at a safe distance, and always keep dogs on leash. #WildlifeWednesday#elk#rut#jeffcotrails#colorado#coloradowildlife
Interesting event happened yesterday. Bull Elk got curious and headed toward this individual. At the time he was more than the recommended distance but didn’t know where to go once he became closer. I always have an exit plan. This individual could have rolled under the fence (there is no bottom) or could have been within these fenced off area to begin with (Where I was). Elk have a min distance of 75ft/23m. As photographers you can look at your focus scale on your lens and you will see meters on it to help you judge distance. @rockynps #elfsafety#beaware#lucky#closeencounter#closecall
Fun time with a yellow-bellied marmot recently in Rocky Mountain National Park. They are building up their fat reserves for winter, which might be here sooner than usual. We are forecasted to see snow this weekend in the mountains. I love the snow but these rolly polly animals of the tundra prefer warmer temps. Might be a while before I see one again after next week. They hibernate during the winter. @visitestespark @rockynps @usinterior @nanpapix @defendersofwildlife @nationalparkgeek @nationalparksusa @goparks @nationalwildlife @nationalparkservice #wildlife#colorado#coloradowildlife#wildlifephotography
I was cleaning up after the mess this guy made last night, when he came back to say hello and thank you. He climbed up the side of my house to my deck and then walked on the rails with the skill of an Olympian. My friend said it looks like he wants to come inside for tea. 🤣 But seriously, #bebearaware . Trash on your porch for even 30 minutes can become a big welcome mat for all the furry creatures. Luckily for me, Mama is nowhere to be seen. Makes me a bit worried for this little guy though. @visitcolorado @coparkswildlife

I'd seen posted warning signs but had never actually seen a rattlesnake in the wild until today...while with my dog at an off-leash park. Your heart skips a beat when you hear the rattle telling you to back up even though you're ten feet away. #coloradowildlife
First significant snow in Ricky Mountain National Park - well if you think 1" is significant. It was wonderful to see the snow yesterday morning and the herd of elk, including, this bull, was s nice surprise. @rockynps @visitcolorado @coloradolifemagazine @coparkswildlife @coloradooutdoorrec @visitestespark @outdoor_life @fieldandstream @rmef_official @nanpapix #nanpapix#wildlife#wildlifephotography#elk#colorado#coloradowildlife
