Fox Kit Pose

September 11, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
2024 Wildlife Calendars Available! Time for another cute fox kit from the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This one posed beautifully (for a split second that is) on exposed rocks. I brought my big 500mm prime lens which, at f/4, turned the bokeh nice and smooth. Here are some of my favorite shots of this little kit... Fine art prints start...

Fox Kit

August 20, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Not many baby animals are cuter than a baby fox in my opinion. Here's a fox kit I photographed late this spring in Jackson Hole. I got low to get at his eye level and shoot through the grass. While his siblings played nearby, this one was taking it easy. Fine art print available, starting at $47 with free UPS shipping: click here Mo...

Flossing Beaver

August 12, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
You see kids, even beavers floss before and after every meal! As I was laying on the ground to get eye-level shots of this beaver in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park, I was surprised when he approached and stood up. I was even more surprised when I saw what looks like a piece of floss between his fingers... (just kidding) Beavers' iron-filled...

Coyote Pup

August 07, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
The bison rut (mating season) is in full swing here in Yellowstone's Lamar valley. As you drive the valley between Little America and the park's Northeastern entrance near Silver Gate, sometimes it feels that you're surrounded by thousands of bison, spread out over the valley. Lots of wallowing and bellowing (grunting) going on and many couples of...

August 03, 2023  •  1 Comment
The cooler weather has finally arrived! With temps into the 80s in the Tetons and parts of Yellowstone, I'm happy to report that the weather here at Yellowstone's Northeast entrance near Silver Gate and Cooke City is... 52 F! The forecast for the next 4-5 days is all good: 50-60 F and a chance of rain. Not that I don't know that more summer temps...

Alaska Grizzlies

July 31, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Alaska's Tongass National Forest is teeming with bears now that the chum salmon are arriving to spawn. This big grizzly (with a funny hairdo) appeared out of the rain forest and, being on the wrong side of the shallow salmon-filled creek, swam the deep glacier-fed lagoon. Along the way he discovered that some salmon prefer the lagoon for spawning...

Long Eared Owl

July 24, 2023  •  2 Comments
While hiking in the backcountry a few days ago, I found four bull moose, hanging out together and hiding from the sun's heat in thick willows near a river. With nothing much to photograph until the moose would decide to get up and walk into a more open area, I killed the time by walking around. A sudden movement, about 2 yards high in a dense pat...

Bull Moose Silhouette

July 20, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
A few days ago, I was fortunate to once again find one of the biggest bull moose in Grand Teton and Jackson Hole, known as "Hoback." The mosquitoes were terrible as he was bedded down along the river in a wet area. As it was just me and him, I sat down on this hot day (80F) to await Hoback getting up. You see, moose in general don't like the heat...

Bellowing Bison

July 07, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Even though most wildlife hides during the height (or is it heat) of summer, the largest mammal in the U.S. has chosen mid July into mid August as its peak season of activity. Coming up is the annual bison mating season and what better place to observe and photograph this than Yellowstone? Yellowstone is the last remaining place with genetically...
