Cindy and I just came back from a great vacation through three national parks and some of the surrounding areas. We saw some wildlife, but it isn't always easy to get your camera up and ready at just the right moment! Here are the best of the pics I have.
We saw these Canadian geese next to the road in Smokey Mountain National Park, right away. They were pretty cooperative at letting us get a picture.
We ended up seeing a lot of turkeys, which I thought was just a lot of fun. This was our first group and not a very good pic. Cindy said they just looked like garbage bags in her pictures. Cindy was keeping tabs on our total numbers, so I will let her reveal those to you, but I can tell you turkey's were our most frequent sighting. It made me want a turkey dinner, which I never got.
Again, in Smokey Mountain National Park, we saw bears! We were in a slow traffic jam and we didn't know why. Finally an employee who was pushing people along told us it was a bear jam! And this was the reason. This bear was happily climbing this tree. We were a fair distance away, but thanks to a zoom lens, you can tell it's definitely a bear. He climbed surprisingly high in this tree.
