Fantastic photos! I've always enjoyed seeing these closeups as my cameras don't get near that quality. Have you ever watched any of these? THEY ARE HILARIOUS! (if you don't mind a little of bad but funny language)

English accent makes it funnier. I particularly enjoyed the part where he yells at the bird.

Ever wonder how big the talons of a Golden Eagle are? They are very large!
This is an image that my taxidermist friend sent to me. He's skinning it today and it is to be mounted for the Colorado Division of Wildlife.

Wow....much bigger than I thought, unless your buddy has one of those "Deadpool" hands. Very cool!

Very cool indeed! Nature's camo at it's best, that's why we barely ever see those. In the U.P. we referred to them a "Walking Sticks" but I only recall seeing a couple in my entire life. Good find!

Here's a creeper I encountered this morning on a rural ranch house where I've been working on the front range. This might be the largest spider I've ever seen, I believe it's a Huntsman but haven't compared images yet. We had Huntsman Spiders in the U.P. but they were always slimmer than this fatty. Must be eating well whatever it is.

This Moose has been bullying Timber and me for the last several days at my work project. It's at a remote log home and I'm the only person there. He's been showing up at the place every morning and has two girlfriends. He herds us into the Jeep and we have to wait it out every time... there's no scaring them off at this time of year and he's fairly good sized.

Haha! He looks like he means business. Moose are no joke this time of year.

That spider is gnarly and I wonder if they have any cats missing!
