For those not from Montana it might be hard to understand exactly how much wildlife really exists in the state. While working as a wildlife photographer is not my primary niche, I do photograph wildlife when it presents itself. Such was the case this past Saturday.
My goal on Saturday was to make photos of farmers as they seeded wheat near Rudyard, Montana. In doing so I came across several herds of pronghorn antelope, flocks of Canadian geese flying south, small groups of white-tailed deer, dozens of ground squirrels, two rabbits, a covey of Hungarian partridges, and one coyote. And that was while driving down the rural roads of Montana. Had I actually been trying to find wildlife I am sure I would have encountered even more.
Wildlife in Montana is everywhere. And chances to engage in wildlife photography in Montana is also equally ubiquitous. Here are just a few photos I took on Saturday. Neither are particularly popular animals in Montana, but I enjoy seeing them and photographing them nonetheless. Hopefully you enjoy my wildlife photos just as much.
