I don't recall, is it a berry tree or a beary tree...

We got up early Saturday 10-16-10 to go to Jackson Wyoming
for my wife’s birthday present. More importantly it was the
Tetons and the wildlife that we were headed out to see.
On the way there we saw a moose calf lying out in the grass
so we stopped for a couple of photos then we were off again.
It took just over three hours to get there.

Here are some of the image results of this short trip.

We found a new meaning and spelling for a Berry Tree,
it is now a Beary Tree. This small black (cinnamon color) bear
was in this small Hawthorne tree eating its berries as fast
as it could and ignoring us, mostly, as it ate to put on
weight for the coming winter sleep. If you are a bear in the
cold country you need a lot of extra fat or you
 might not wake up next spring.

We saw lots of moose,
and mule deer
and a beaver working on his dam.

 Below is a night, flash image.

...and a Ruffed Grouse

 ... and I slipped in a Cotton Tail rabbit (below) from the night
before. We had dinner with my parents at Bear lake.

 NO COLOR changes on the above,
this is exactly how it was.
And, for the record. This last image is the only one
that I have changed. I did add / tweak some color.

Alas, we came home. It took four hours to get home
but we made it. We really did not want to go.

Can I go back now?
PS Holdingmoments Keith, Thanks for the Red Wing info. I get it now. ;)
You sometimes have to educate us Yanks!

The pics of the bear are priceless (although the others are just as nice) -in Yosemite National Park we saw a bear only two times running in front of our car across the road and we were driving about 35 miles, so no time to catch him in the act with my camera!

Hi....Just saw your comment on Keiths " glog...and jumped over because was curious when I saw the Red wing blackbird thing...sometimes I get very confussed because what we call a Robin here in the states doesn't look at all what the say is a Robin over there!!
Enough of that your photos are fantastic especially the bear on top of the tree is a real hoot. : }
Wonderful !!

All of these pics are fantastic! Amazing shots of the bear.

A Bear is an animal I'll only see in a zoo over here; if I'm lucky. You got shots of a bear being a bear. They are amazing. I love that close up, where he's looking at you.
Such a variety of wildlife captured there. And the last 2 pictures; beautiful.
I can imagine you not wanting to leave. I certainly wouldn't want to.

Glad you got it, about the Redwing ;)

What a rewarding trip for Wildlife photos. We did not get up to Jackson this year and when we went to Yellowstone it was so early in the year that we couldn't go out the Jackson side. Thanks for dropping by my blog and following #253. I visited your wife's Art blog - She has real skills Love the one of the Logan Temple along with the others.
