Kootenai Again

I went back to Kootenai the next day.  I got several nice deer photos, but did not see any moose.  So I decided to return to Kootenai the following evening and was, again, greeted by many deer.

Including several fawns.

And some good sized bucks.

This one tried to convince me he could fly.

But I wasn’t distracted from my goal, which was to find moose.

Even though the deer seemed everywhere,

I saw the moose again and this time I saw a female and a male.

Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge

Not knowing where I am or what an area has to offer leads me to asking the locals.  While in Idaho, one person told me about a waterfall just twenty-five miles away.  So, one morning, I set out to find a waterfall.  Ultimately, I couldn’t find it, or did find it but couldn’t see it.  I decided to drive back to my camper but had remembered a sign I had seen along the way.  Probably the reason why I couldn’t find the waterfall.  It said, Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, with an arrow pointing west and stating 6 miles.

Kootenai is a wetland that began with an original land donation and has since grown.  It’s purpose is to provide a refuge for migratory birds and local mammals.  I saw many birds, from robins to geese to herons to hawks inside the refuge.  The deer really caught my eye though, in particular, whitetail deer.

I began taking photos of the many deer within the refuge and then noticed something else.  At first I thought it was another deer.  Then I realized it was a moose.

She stayed in the shadows all the while I tried to photograph her and this is the best photo I got.  When I left Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, I already knew I would be returning to try to get better photos of moose.

And Kootenai has a waterfall!
