Ya Ha Tinda is just on the edge of Banff National Park - East and North. The valley from Lake Louise (Pipestone) extends into it and it is the wintering area for a large number of elk. It is also the area that they plan to release woodland bison this summer.

Ya Ha Tinda ranch is where Parks Canada overwinters their horses in a big corral.

Ya Ha Tinda is also an area noted for its wild (feral) horses. No one seems to know how long they have been there but they are really wild.

Anyway - I took a visit to Ya Ha Tinda today and here are my best shots. This is not my usual fare but it was fun just the less. It is a bit early for grizzly and I am anxiously awaiting them.

Anyway I hope you enjoy my efforts at "wildlife".

Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott

Some very nice shots. A bit out of the ordinary for the FM site. They are all excellent but the big-horn sheep portrait is IMHO the best.

Glad you like my wild horses. Last night after posting them I discovered lots of ticks everywhere on my photography clothes so unexpectedly I risked life and limb for these pictures. Not to mention lots of grumpy challenging stars from the stallion.

Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

What great offerings, Scott. Maybe not your usual faire but still a pleasure to see. I think the horse portraits are especially nice. There's something about seeing them in a more 'natural' setting like these that makes the pictures extra-special. The bonds between the generations is cool to see.

Nicely done-thanks for posting.
