I had the opportunity to drive over Satus Pass and see some herds of Wild Horses, with nearly as many colts as adults. They are so beautiful to watch, and the herds were made up of all colors. What a great treat! My one zoom lens, an EF 55-250 IS just was not up to the challenge and the detail is not great on the shots… I had to crop them hard to show the horses big enough, but they are still worth seeing!
This next two shots brought back happy memories of childhood… my favorite book was The Black Stallion! This might be a mare, I could not tell for sure at that distance.. but it really made me smile!
And a zoom in on a colt with a mop top bristle of a mane, they were so adorable!
On the same day I also saw a Black Bear sniffing along after a Cinnamon Bear… I can guess what he wanted! She was PURTY! lol
Then he noticed us watching from the road
But his chosen Lady was calling his name and leaving scent for him
So on down the hill he went after her
After one more glance to be sure we were not coming any closer they both disappeared down into the draw
We waited around for a few moments, and sure enough they came back up closer to us, but the Bitterbrush and Sage was so tall along the slope all we could see was the tops of their backs moving, until the big Black came to a Ponderosa Tree and stood up in the shelter of its branches to better see what we were up to. When he threw himself back down I think the ground shook… his fur rippled heavily. Needless to say we were staying right in by the truck ready to jump back in if necessary.
It was also a lovely wildflower day, but I will save that for another post! Thanks for looking, and PLEASE DO FEEL FREE TO SHARE MY POST AND MY PAGE ON YOUR FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE PLUS, DROP ME A COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW SO I CAN COME VISIT. I LOVE COMPANY!
