In my previous fishing expeditions I have been accompanied by Deer, Elk, Moose, Bears, Dolphins, Hammerhead and other species of Sharks and even a Whale Shark but this companion raised the bar to a new high, maybe even unsurpassable.
My Good Friend Dick and I were fishing on Friday the 13th (July 13, 2012) and we were accompanied by an Oreamnos americanus, also known as a Rocky Mountain Goat. This was very exciting for me as this is the closest I have ever been to one, outside a zoo. He/she was posing as if he/she was expectantly awaiting the camera click.
But, due to my excitement and fumbling I could not seem to get my camera out of my vest fast enough. By the time I got my s#*t together and got the camera in position, our friend had enough of my fumbling and started ambling off. As usual I was not prepared so the pix by the creek are the dismal result.
Eventually our friend ventured out of the woods and who I followed like a puppy chasing an ice cream cone, onto the adjacent road which gave me another chance for a photo-op. The aforementioned friend apparently felt sorry for me and struck an appropriate pose thus allowing allowed me to capture said friends photo.
BY THE WAY THE FISHING WAS NOT TOO BAD EITHER!!
A GREAT DAY BY ANY MEANS!!!!!!!!!!
