The otters had a knack of popping up unexpectedly and then scooting up the ice. It would have been difficult to get on them with a tripod mounted camera, although one lady there was trying her best.

That is a very nicely organized composition.

How much is it cropped?

Did you happen to take this from the bridge?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I cropped the heck out off it! The composition is courtesy of the otters- They ran in pretty good syncopation for quite a ways- I was shooting on burst, and in every capture, the body shapes were nearly identical.
I don't know how familiar you are with Yellowstone. If you are going from Mammoth towards Soda Butte, at the east end of Lamar Valley, perhaps a mile before Soda Butte there is a rest area on the south (right hand side) of the road. Just before the rest area, there are some ledges on the left. It was across from the ledges that the otters were.
There were some big horn rams up on the ledges so it was a case of snapping some shots of the rams, check to see if the otters were out, turn around check on the sheep... In other words, a heck of a great day.

We saw a LOT of wolves less than 1/4 mile away. We watched them chase down a bison & injure it....the bison ran into the rives to protect itself but inevitably, it died after about 2 hours. Unfortunately it was too dark to take pictures of the feast that ensued but it was really an opportunity of a lifetime & more than I ever imagined I would witness.

One wolf crossed the river 3 times to check on the status of the bison. He must have been the hungriest. :)

This guy was on my wish list but I never dreamt he would run right up to my feet. What a thrill!

We saw lots of otter slides but no otters this time. I just booked this trip again for next February.

I have done Yellowstone twice in May specifically for babies & bears. It does not disappoint.

I love May in Yellowstone - so much snow and ice ..... which makes for such beautiful wildlife photos!

The only drawback is that some roads, such as Dunraven Pass, are still closed, which makes it a bit difficult to traverse to and from the different parts of the park.

Agree...we have done it in September for that sole purpose....we almost did it this past trip but we made the detour on the hint that wolves were nearby so we opted for the wolves. So glad we did
