Wyoming wildlife photos

Wyoming Game and Fish project coordinator Mark Nelson didn’t have to venture far to capture this image of a juvenile Cooper’s hawk (Accipiter cooperii). He found it in a city park in Cheyenne. Credit: Mark Nelson

Wildlifers often get a view of the natural world few others do. If they have a camera in hand, they come away with some amazing glimpses of wildlife in their element. In Wyoming, summer is a key time to observe wildlife. The September issue of Wyoming Wildlife features state Game and Fish employees sharing some of their summer images. From swift fox (Vulpes velox) kits to black bear (Ursus americanus) cubs, their images capture glimpses of the wild throughout the Cowboy State.
