These images were taken over a span of 2 and 1/2 hours and I was pretty excited to get up close and personal with the Javelinas. I had spotted them at a distance and after looking over the terrain, thought I might be able to drop off the ridge I was on, down through a ravine and up the next ridge, and be in the midst of the six. It worked perfectly and for the first time I was able to stand still and have Javelinas come to me. I happened to have my old 5D Mk 2 camera with the 100-400 lens with me and it was in its element.
Javelina testing a prickly pear cactus
Taking a bite
Yep, was tasty
Getting a little amorous
Can you see all four?
This is a series of a fast moving young bighorn ram
Further along I spotted these sheep on the skyline
Digging out my little superzoom Canon SX 50, I captured a closer image of the big sheep in the lower left of the last photo
This is my second post of the day. If you scroll down a bit, you will find more photos posted today.
