0846 Brumby near Cascade Hut

Australian Brumby near Cascade Hut in Kosciusko National Park - a feral animal but impossible to remove from the Park for various social and practical reasons.
It was moving very nicely, and quite inquisitive.

A favorite outdoor companion when I was in Katmai National Park, Alaska.

This big fellow always seemed to have salmon on his breath.

Jay, I believe that is the California Mountain Kingsnake which is different from a common kingsnake. If you are into snakes, that is a beauty.

Phenomenal wolverine! on 07/09/2011 01:23:55 MDT Print View


That is a phenomenal photo.

Any more info? As a huge photo geek I'd love to know camera/lens/zoom post-processing... really anything.

In fact, in going over this thread I've seen very little in terms of technical info on cameras/lenses used or anything else for that matter. Let's try to change that in future posts!

I love UL because it lets me go farther. Going farther lets me see more of the sort of things in this thread. Let us BPLers help each other capture and share those moments for posterity!

Most people posting here are ultralight backpackers. As such, the use of heavy camera equipment is kind of out of the question for backpacking use. Most people are using a sub-one-pound camera.

I fight that trend. By lightening up my basic backpacking gear, it allows me to carry some good/heavy camera equipment to get the shot. My basic load is 10-11 lbs of base weight, 10-11 lbs of food and expendables, and 10.5 lbs of camera gear.

Wow Bob thats an awesome picture. I actually used to live in Stanley (well near there, about 20 miles away), and was never lucky enough to see one. I had heard that there are some in the Sawtooths, but never saw one on any of my treks there

I was on my way toward Yellowstone, and I decided to take a detour through Boise and then north. You know that you are out in the boonies when Stanley is the population center for miles around, and it has a human population of only 100. Lots of the current Forest Service data on wolverines is coming from the Stanley area, so that's why I set up a night camera rig. Imagine my surprise during the middle of the night when my bell rings that tells me that some intruder is present.

Ooh, I've never come across a three-color king. Here's a foothill edition, more of a li'l prince snake.

This is a fantastic thread
Hope I get this right - haven't tried posting pics before but I resized them so not too big.

The next two are a pair. The long shot shows the West Cape Howe hut on the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia. The second shows the kangaroo (big buck - would have been at least 6 foot tall) that was there for the whole time we were - about half an hour. We went within about 15-20 feet of him but didn't want to disturb him. He just watched us the whole time.West Cape Howe HutMale Western Grey Kangaroo

This is a bighorn sheep lamb. It is in its first summer, so it is still following its mother around.
