Nice set, like the wolf shot. I will be returning in June. Get get enough of this place.

Thanks! Yellowstone is addictive - no doubt about it.

Lovely series. I particularly like the fox and wolf shots. That fox looks so soft!

Best regards,
Jason

True, beautiful coat on the fox. It looked nice and healthy. The wolf is a year old and she looked a little scruffy. Not sure if she has mange - I sure hope not!

Thanks for your comment.

What lens did you use for these? I'm assuming you weren't as close to the fox or wolf as the picture indicates.

Hi Kevin,

7D and 500 f4 IS. Images were cropped a bit.

Excellent photos. What 'field craft' was required to locate the animals and get in a good position for photographing?

Good question. Mostly luck :):):). And a lot of driving, talking to others for sightings, patience, anticipation of movement...oh and did I mention luck? Took me 4 trips to get close to one of the wolves in the park. Last year I observed at distance one of the wolf packs take down a bison. I think it was the silver pack...

Excellent. How did you get that close to a wolf?

Thanks Sam. I know where one of the packs have a den. The area is rightfully closed so one cannot hike in to the den...not that that would be a smart idea anyway. The shot was taken from the road. I had a good idea of the area where the wolf would patrol for food - so I (and 3 other photog buddies) spent quite a bit of time looking for her from the road. Now we had no idea she'd end up so close. Also, a ranger was present to make sure she did not approach any closer and also to keep any silly humans from approaching her too close - which no one did. And by the way, that ranger was top notch. His respect for these animals was readily apparent.

So, now did you know where the den was? When we think about planning a pure photo safari there, we look a a Yellowstone blog for insight. We never met a bad ranger there, but then again we never did meet a ranger who knew where a den was.

We only have shots of wolves at over 1/2 a mile at Yellowstone.

good to hear, some rangers are excellent, but the younger ones are usually in panic mode ! last year we had some really bad experiences with young rangers and bears.. but they dont have an easy job either with the idiotic people who think they can go pet wild animals
