399 and Spirit are Awake!

April 22, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Last night, April 21, grizzly 399 and her yearling cub Spirit put in a very brief appearance in her usual area in Grand Teton National Park! They are both officially awake from hibernation. Great to see that both made it through the winter, especially 399 at her old age of 28 now. Today, I was in the park all day looking for her, but no one saw h...

The King

April 16, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Meet the (former) King of Jackson Hole. This bull moose, named Shoshone by photographers for easy identification, was the biggest bull around in Grand Teton National Park for several years. It's been two years now since anyone has seen him, so it's feared that he's no longer alive. That being said, this past fall, I saw a young bull moose with v...

Bull Elk

April 15, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
In the fall, while hiking around Jackson Hole to look for moose, I typically carry my 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. I love that lens and since moose are not too skittish in the area, the focal length works great to get close shots as well as scenics. Elk, due to the annual hunt in Grand Teton National Park and in the surrounding Bridger-Teton National For...

Backlit Moose

April 12, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Backlit images are some of my favorites. It doesn't always work out as you need a clear silhouette, unobscured by other dark elements that may make the animal blend in too much. Or, in this case, growing fluffy velvet-covered antlers on one of the biggest bull moose in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Moose fine art prints are available on...

Bison in Winter

April 05, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Winter is a great time to visit Yellowstone National Park and experience the harsh environment. The only road accessible by car is in the northern section of the park from Gardiner to Cooke City. The rest of the park's interior is off limits to visitors with the exception of snow mobile tours, and, how I did it, via a snow coach. Think a van on g...

Melanistic Red Fox

March 26, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is home to the Red Fox. Even though the fox looks like a mid-sized dog, it typically only weighs around 15 pounds (7 kg) and most of its appearance is fur. The largest Red Fox males can be up to 30 pounds. Easily recognizable by the white tip on its tail, as the name suggests, the main body of the Red Fox is typi...

River Eelgrass

March 24, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
When visiting Arizona's wild horses that live along the Salt river, a few miles east of Phoenix, you may wonder how on earth these large animals find enough food to survive in the desert. Situated in the Sonoran desert, you may wonder the same about the Phoenix metro's human population of 4,6 million. That was the first thing I pondered after I mo...

Snow Geese Migration

March 20, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The spring migration is on for snow geese. As an estimated 50,000 of them spend winter in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge along the Rio Grande, during spring they migrate north to their breeding grounds. Most snow geese that spend winters here in New Mexico go to Canada or the Alaskan tundra, but it's astonishing that some...
