Final pictures from the trip.
Finally figured out how to take a decent picture of the full moon as it is coming up. It is too dark to take with out a flash. Using the flash will shorten the length of exposure but since the moon is already lit, it comes out beautifully against the dark sky.
The rest of these are House Finches from Laura's yard. I saw some yellow/orange finches but they never came around while I had my camera.
On our trip, we saw Horned Toads, Elk, Deer, Jack Rabbits, Coyotes, Antelope, as well as other wildlife. Most of them scampered away too fast, the camera wasn't ready, or it was at night while we were driving. The Deer, Elk, and Antelope were all in the velvet and absolutely beautiful.
