From the 4 days or so I had in Yellowstone over the weekend.

1. The stock standard buffalo shot

Between Canyon and Fishing Bridge

2. The Bull Elk


After the crazy people had been told standing next to these wasn't a good idea.

Between West Entrance and Madison

3. A Bird (An Id would be good).

This one has suffered a bit from the downsizing to the size restrictions.

Shot at dusk at Mammoth Hot Springs.

4. Osprey Family


A heavy crop from a manually focused 100-400 with 1.4x teleconverter.

Lamar Valley - Just after Slough Creek heading towards the NE Gate.

5. Grizzly Mother + 2 Cubs

Again on the 100-400 with 1.4x tc manual focus

Dunraven Pass between Canyon and Tower. She's been tending her cubs for the last few months there.

Nothing has been processed to any great extent yet beyond white balance and a touch of sharpening. Probably should have run some NR across some of them, but will get there once I get my main computer up and running again (rather than my laptop screen)

good shots - the bird is a Killdeer - your Grizzly shot is great for the distance - mine were not that good -she was way down the hill

I think it is okay to have far off Grizzly shots :)...mine in the wild were about 1/4 mile away.

These are really a nice set....love the Osprey. The chicks were not hatched when we were there in May but there was a lot of guarding going on.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Nice series of shots. For anything that can give a serious bite, distance is a good thing.

Good series. You don't want to park your car too close either. During the rut last year a bull used his horns to beat the crap out of some guy's hood. :rolleyes:

Thanks guys + gals. As for the distance - wish the grizzlys were on the closer hill than they were, so I didn't have to use the 1.4x converter - but hey it's nature you deal with what you get.

Still waiting to get the computer up and going so I can process some panos.
