So far this year I haven’t seen much in the way of stand out nature animals. Sorry all you muted brown drab animals, you blend in too well! Yesterday, however, I found the first red newts (5!) of the season.
Here are two from earlier this year:
always good for a prey animal to blend in
great blue heron, right before the area started coming back to life on an overcast day
Sorry for adding three more BUT here are some neat ones from when I was in Salt Lake City with my sister 5+ years ago:
can’t really tell but his belly was a bright yellow. also he was regenerating his tail
the buffalo was the coolest! a close up shot
and one with the mountains in the background. it was a gorgeous day for a hike and was so cool seeing buffalo in the wild!
