Lens Artists Photo Challenge # 211 – What’s your Photographic Groove

In this challenge host Anne asks us “What is your Photographic Groove? What type of photography do you truly enjoy? “

I enjoy the challenge of photographing birds and wildlife in their natural habitat. The header image is of a bugling Elk in Cataloochee Valley in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in North Carolina. One fall we traveled there in hope of seeing the magnificent elk herd that lives there. We weren’t disappointed. I posted about our experience at Cataloochee Valley Elk in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

The following gallery contains some of my favorite wildlife images from our travels around the United States and Canada.

This next gallery contains some of my favorite bird images.

Many thanks to Anne for this Lens-Artists Challenge #211 – What’s your Photographic Groove?

  1. Wonderful response to the challenge. I must say I lean towards the birds and their beautiful feathers, but that may also be because I’m bigger than them and I have no fear. The big guys in the top section could all cause me some real bodily harm. πŸ™‚

  2. Terrific Beth! I recognize so many of our local fauna here in the lowcountry. I absolutely loved your bear and your moose surrounded by the flowers especially – maybe because they are definitely NOT among our local creatures LOL! Excellent groove.

  3. Great groove Beth! All your images are terrific. We camped for about 30 years before we saw our first bear! And you also captured the elks rutting. What a treat! Thanks for joining in.

  4. I think my favorite is the moose. The wildflowers make it special. Being at the right place at the right time (of year) is always nice.

    More than that, so many of the animals and birds seem just as interested in you. You gift must be patience in waiting for ht nod. Very nice. Donna

    1. Donna, thank you so much for your kind words. I agree that much of wildlife photography depends on being in the right place at the right time. We were towing our camper in British Columbia on our way to Alaska when I saw the bear in the flowers on my side of the road. My husband was able to stop, I rolled down the window and took some photos.
