These are just a few irises I came across on a walk one morning.

Scratching an Itch

Yellowstone Bear World has a drive-through park area where you can see the bears up close and personal.  Rules are windows closed, doors locked, and no stopping because the bears can, and will, come up to your car.  It’s not easy to take photos through the glare of a car window when you’re moving, but I did get a shot if this fellow scratching its back on a tree.

Strutting his Stuff

I just returned from spending four days in Idaho with family to attend our granddaughter’s high school graduation.  We had a wonderful time and spent one day at Yellowstone Bear World in Rexburg, Idaho (see website here). It’s a wonderful place to bring the kids and being the animal lover I am, I had a photographic field day.

This peacock was in the petting zoo and most of the day was sitting on top of a small building.  Just before we left in the afternoon, he started showing off to a female nearby and displayed his full plumage. He then did a 360 degree turn to show us all his glory. I’m so glad I didn’t miss that.
