Elk Deer Moose & Sheep and mountain goats - ON THE WILD SIDE PHOTOGRAPHY
Aquila chrysaetos, or the golden eagle proud and majestic to say the least. I will never forget the first time I saw a golden in the wild feeding on a deer carcas along the highway in eastern Oregon. It was so big and powerful looking it took my breath away and I have been captivated by them ever since. I was blessed to have been able to photograph this bird in the west end of the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone in May of 2009.

The Rocky Mountian Elk, the iconic figure in the american wild. Known to the native Americans as the wapiti this creature is probably the most sought after of all the big game animals of North America. I happened across this bull and his harem of cows one september evening in Yellowstone National Park.
