Your Best of 2019

Post by Max »

It's time to share favorite images of the year. I'll have my own choices next week, but let's see what you've got. We can do a non-YS thread in the other forum as well.

I've seen worse poses out of a marten. That must've been awesome.

Wow Rik! Those are superb. I was going to try and post something, but now I feel intimidated ;)

Here are a few of our favorites. We don't match the quality of the the others that get posted here, but they're ours and it brings back such good memories that we enjoy.

The fox was playing 'possum lying there so still I thought he was sick or dying. A ground squirrel nearby thought so too, a fatal mistake. Quick as a flash the fox jumped up and had the squirrel. The second photo is after the squirrel was buried for a later snack.

The grizzly sow, Felicia as she has been named, put on quite the show for us on the fence. This is just one of the many poses she gave over a period of several minutes.

I'm cheating on the otter photos as they are actually from 2018. But since I have just recently learned how to post pictures, I'm putting them on. We got to see the otter catch and consume a large trout at Trout Lake.

Karen took most of the photos using a hand-held Fuji or Nikon.

Thanks Rik. Yeah, we were behind a tree but with a good view about 30 feet away and it just did its thing for close to an hour. Watched it swimming and diving before it caught a huge trout and proceeded to chow the whole thing down including the tail as the last piece. It also lapped up any pieces that had fallen in the grass or water. Then it scratched and groomed itself before rolling and covering itself in the grass on this narrow protrusion and curling up for a nap. Never had an experience like that with an otter.

I had three Yellowstone images make the cut this year. I'm going with this one as my favorite moment of the three, mainly because I had never seen these two species interacting before. It also helped the fawns were only a couple hours old, and I got to share the moment with my clients.

Max,those are some great shots. I've always had a desire to take the hot air balloon ride but never had the courage. Glad you had a chance to do it.

I love the shot of the black wolf--those eyes!

Bill
