Mature Arizona Lion Missing Right Ear!

Mature Arizona Lion Missing Right Ear! This picture is of a healthy southern Arizona mountain lion that is about 130-140 pounds, and is probably 5-6 years old. This tom has seen his share of fights and is missing his right ear. He also has a few scars on his nose and on his right side, which you can’t see in this picture. I love this picture because he posed perfectly for the camera. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

Ali vs Frazier

Mama Bear Watching Over Her Cubs

Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron: I’ve been monitoring this pond with an S600, homemade trail camera since the beginning of summer. This was one of the more memorable catches. This heron would visit every so often to do a little frog fishing. This was the top pose.

Caught in the Act

I got several pics before and after the act of this buck mating. I did see this buck several times during the season and elected to pass as I thought he needs another year to mature.

Beautiful Ohio Buck

Beautiful Ohio Buck: I was lucky enough to capture this image of a stud buck following what appeared to be a doe coming into estrous a month early. This would be a beautiful picture of any deer, but fortunately it was my first mature buck on camera.

2 Buck Luck: This year we have two bucks that are constantly at the bait pile together. They are never separated. I have heard that it is pretty rare for bucks to hang around each other, so the fact that we caught numerous photos on multiple occasions of these two is great! Photo By rebeccacrimmins
