Bull Moose in Wild Flowers

January 03, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The Northeastern section of Yellowstone into the tiny towns of Silver Gate and Cooke City is a great place to go looking for moose. I found this big bull in the Custer Gallatin National Forest which borders Yellowstone National Park. Even though hunting is allowed there, I was surprised at how not skittish this bull moose was, and, how big he was...

December 31, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Here are your favorite images of 2023 as selected by engagements on my website, Facebook, Instagram and Threads.

Young Grizzly

December 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Now that the bears are all safe inside their winter dens, I continue editing the thousands of pictures I took this past year. This past spring, Felicia, a.k.a. grizzly 863, kicked out her 2.5 year old cubs as expected. The cubs didn't go very far, however. They stayed in the area where Felicia raised them, around the Togwotee mountain pass that i...

Fox Kit Close-Up

December 25, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Upclose and personal with a cute fox kit in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. I brought my big 500mm prime lens but the fox didn't get the idea that I was using it to keep sufficient distance from the wildlife. The kit wandered over and all I could get was this framing, before he wandered too close for the minimal focusing distance of the lens!...

Snow Geese at the Rio Grande

December 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Winter is an excellent time to visit the Rio Grande river in New Mexico. The wintering home of thousands of Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese, many wildlife refuges exist along the river for easy viewing and photographing. This image was made in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. Both Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes search out t...

Incoming!

December 10, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Sandhill Cranes arrive for the night at one of the ponds in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. It's great fun photographing the bird silhouettes as they fly into the safety of water to spend the night. There are plenty of coyotes and bobcats around, who cannot silently approach the birds while they're in the water. When phot...

Bull Moose in the Sage

December 06, 2023  •  1 Comment
Once the easy browsing for leaves comes to an end in the fall, moose move out into the open sage brush flats to browse their favorite winter food: antelope bitterbrush. I found this big bull out in the open near a creek in the Tetons. He wasn't alone, however, as about 10 other moose were eating bitterbrush spread out around him. Moose fine art...

Bull Moose Pose

December 04, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
On some hikes you get lucky, on others you wander around for hours through the sage brush trying to stay upright. This hike, in one of my go-to places in Jackson Hole to look for bull moose, I found this bull hanging out by himself. After a short introduction ("hey moose"), he couldn't care less that I was around to make some images. Moose fine...

Coyote Pups

399 + Spirit

November 27, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Now that the bears are all safe inside their winter dens, it's time for me to look at the large amount of pictures taken this past year. I left Wyoming and am at my winter home in New Mexico, next to the Rio Grande river and home to thousands of Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese who spend winter here. Even though it does get cold here, it's nothing c...

If Moose Could Talk ...

November 19, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Close-up of a bull moose who I found hanging out along the Gros Ventre river in Jackson Hole. Since mating season is over, the bulls have calmed down and generally don't mind having their picture taken. While bull moose can be hard to find during mating season, as the bulls are constantly on the move looking for cows, these days you can sometimes...
