I choose Lakeshore. Jackson Lake, in particular. Grand Teton National Park. Wyoming. All photos taken last Thursday. We are canoeing. Close to the lakeshore.
Top billing/photo goes to m’lady and her obsolescing iPhone6. Purrrrfect.
The rest are mine.
Mt. Moran is the largest-looking peak (12,610 feet (3,840 m)), on the right. It is named for Thomas Moran, iconic ‘American western frontier painter’ (Englishman, however, old chap).
Grand Teton, second from left down range, is 13,775 feet (4,199 m).
We went early, when the lake was calm and the people considerably fewer.
Speaking of birds, can anyone verify the identity of the following bird? I saw it at Big Hole National Battlefield in Montana last Tuesday. Many have said perhaps a kestrel or a Cooper’s Hawk. I’m definitely not a birder but to me it most closely resembles a Sharp-Shinned Hawk (SSHA). This photo is from a bit of distance. I should have shot when it was hovering 20-30 ft. over me. What do you think?
