What was your most memorable sighting of one or more animals in the wild?

Mine easily was during the boat trip I took off of Alaska, when I saw a humpback whale with her calf, as well as a pod of killer whales.  (I did not get to see the killer whales attack the humpbacks.)  There were also several dolphins and porpoises.

One other memorable animal sighting was in when I saw a moose for the first time in Montana.

When we went to Sea World in 5th grade, we saw two whales having sex.

I'm having a memorable moment at this very second.  There are two hawks sitting outside my home, and my cat is chattering at them.

While going out into the woods with my uncle early one morning (about 3:30 AM) to go hunting, we came face to face with a deer that was about ten feet away from us. I've also seen a few sharks in the intracoastal, including one which made it up the side canal where my house is.

I saw a moose dip its head in the water, then come up and look at us.

Killbear Provincial Park. My family was at the bathroom and it was basically pitch black because the campfire was pretty much done. It also happened to be the night of Susana's speech at the Republican convention in 2012, so naturally I was streaming the thing from 3G onto my laptop. My parents weren't too impressed.

Anyway, halfway through her speech I hear someone shout "BEAR," and two seconds later I hear these thunderous footfalls in the patch of trees beside our campsite. A sapling comes crashing down and almost lands on me, and I know the bear is literally feet away. I actually never saw the thing because it was so dark and my eyes were adjusted to the laptop screen, but I damn-well heard it. I never yelled so loud in all my life.

The first week of my Junior year at LSU, it was raining the whole week. It was pretty depressing actually. I was walking home from the gym one night; I walked over a bridge and looked down. I saw a pelican floating down in the creek. It caught my eye because it was bright white and it stood out against the gloomy, rainy environment. It seemed pretty cool.

When I went to Yosemite Nat'l Park with my family in a cabin. We decided to bring a frozen DiGiornio pizza to make. Once it was done we looked outside and our cabin was surrounded by at least 6............ deer. They came up and were tapping at the door because unbeknownst to us, Yosemite deer love DiGiornio pizza. Eventually we scared them away.
