On another long day spent looking for wildlife in Wyoming, it seems that the best was saved for last.
Hours of nothing led to a brief grizzly bear sighting in late afternoon.
The bear quickly disappeared and since it's generally not a great idea to follow a grizzly around on foot, I moved on and started heading towards home.
Barely 15 minutes from getting back home, I ran into this beautiful bull moose.
As the sun set behind the mountains, he walked up onto a ridge and performed the flehmen response.
While looking for wildlife, most days things don't work out ... but luckily some days things come together.
I typically love color in my images but for this one I chose to go black & white to highlight the silhouette against the clear sky.
Here he was walking in my general direction after the sun had set.
His silhouette when he walked through heavy sage brush.
