Colorado Parks and Wildlife Wildlife

A little over 5 months ago I moved to Colorado and thanks to a gig with Colorado Parks and Wildlife I had the opportunity to visit over 23 state parks this summer.  I'm so amazed at is the abundance of wildlife in and out of the parks.  The continued effort to keep public land, public in this great state is one of the main reasons that the habitats are well maintained and able to allow these great creatures to survive.  Below are some of my favorite shots from the past 5 months. 

Thanks and enjoy the imagery.
