Fauna in the Field GeoMeme

It seems I’m already a meme behind in posting this one, but better late than never…

The animals in the field meme has grown to include both domesticated and wild examples, but when I started going through old field photos looking to join the fun I came to the realization that I’ve got remarkably few digital photos of fauna (but plenty of flora). I do have a bunch of older slide photos with wildlife but I figured it might be more interesting to see the odd assortment of digital “wildlife” photos that I did stumble upon…

First, there’s a bear (not particularly geological, I’ll grant you, but I’ve got a soft spot for old Smokey):

Then there are the stegosauri:

and

Of course, I’ve got plenty more dinosaur photos from museums, but the ones above were the only ones I found in the “field”.

There is one “domesticated” animal I photographed in the field – friends of Adirondack geology may recognize the “Steer’s Head”:

And finally, I’ll wrap-up with a couple of local animals carved out of limestone by Hays, KS sculptor Peter Felten…

A lamb:

A bison (the Monarch of the Plains):

A hereford bull:

and finally, a nesting Pteradon:
