YNP May 16-21, 2021

The first thing I noticed as I drove north from Flagg Ranch was that both Lewis and Yellowstone lakes were still covered in ice. Even though it was warm,it was kind of a neat feeling to be in the park, before it has fully thawed out. I stopped and looked at Fishing bridge, Sedge bay and other spots ...

Re: Tetons on way to YNP May 2021

Well that is sad. Too bad there is not enough wilderness to relocate him far, far, away. Thanks for the update.

Tetons on way to YNP May 2021

After visiting Market Lake on my drive up North I arrived at Jackson Hole on May 11th. I had a campsite in Gros Ventre. The park road North to Yellowstone was scheduled to open on May 14th. I had reservations in Gardiner for May 16th. So I had five full days to look for bear 399 and her family of fo...

Market Lake Idaho

Driving up to YNP/Tetons from the south on the 15 freeway takes me right thru Idaho's Market Lake. I spent the night there and then had a good group of birds to take pictures of, in the morning, before driving east into the Tetons.

Re: Snow, snow, 610, Yellowstone and GT hikes Oct 17-23

Thanks for the report. It must be fun to be able to see the park in all of its transitions. Sorry about the lost report. It can be quite frustrating so I have learned to type the text of my reports on a word document then cut and paste into the website.

Re: Thoughts on a Bison in a Snowstorm

Congratulations again Max! Remember when we were in Patagonia shooting the Puma with two cubs in the light snow with the blackened bush? Did you happen to try any snow streaks during that session? I was busy trying to just get a sharp photo of all three pumas but I remember enjoying the effect of th...

Re: Brief Park Update

Thanks for the report Mike. I had the option to stay a bit longer bit glad I headed south when I did. It was crazy how those antelope suddenly appeared enmass all over the park. Sometimes in herds and others just sprinkled singly all of the meadows and hills, but all visible on the same day. We noti...

Re: Tanzania 2019 Birds

The weaver and the roller are just startling pictures! My favorites for sure. I have never seen that type of owl before either, what a great shot that is. Looks like you had good light also for these sessions.
