Bison in the Mist, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Bison_in_the_Mist.jpg

Bison in the Mist

This picture was captured in the Hayden Valley on a cool morning when mist and fog had formed. What I like about this image is the primal feel that it conveys...a Bison herd in the mist with steam from thermal features in the distance. Image size is 9.4" x 16.3" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Courting Grizzlies, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Courting_Grizzlies.jpg

Courting Grizzlies

This is something very, very few visitors to the park will have the opportunity to see. If you visit the park several days a week for many years you will still probably not see this. I observed these two grizzly bears courting and mating in a late spring (early June) snow storm. I wish I had sound to go with this picture because the bear on the left let out a might roar as if to say, "I said not now!!!" Image size is 9.4" x 18.6" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Big Horn Lamb on a Wall, Matted and Mounted, $37.00

Big_Horn_Lamb_on_Wall.jpg

Big Horn Lamb on a Wall

This little guy was being quite the little daredevil near the roadside in the Tower Falls area. I sat and watch him for a while; he seemed oblivious to my being there. At one point, he jumped up on this wall and looked at me over his shoulder as if to show off. Image size is 12.5" x 17.2" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Solitary Bison & Reflection

Taken late in the day in the northern part of Yellowstone. This bison was one of a heard of bison passing through the area. I captured this shot as this animal paused to drink. Image size is 10.1" x 18.6" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Chain Lakes Bison, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Chain_Lakes_Bison.jpg

Chain Lakes Bison

This pair of Bison was captured as they moved through the Chain Lakes area in the Upper Geyser Basin on a cold February late afternoon. It was very cloudy that day with only an occassional bit of sun peaking through. Luckily, the sun hit the scene just as these wonderful animals moved from an area of steam into the light. Image size is 8.6" x 16.3" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Sheepeater Cliffs Marmot

A marmot on a sunny late spring morning grooming himself on the basalt formations at Sheepeater Cliffs. These guys are pretty calm around visitors and strike a variety of poses...if you're patient! Image size is 12.5" x 17.9" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Hayden Valley Resting Fox, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Hayden_Valley_Resting_Fox.jpg

Hayden Valley Resting Fox

We observed a Red Fox making his rounds in the Hayden Valley in February. I think the meandering track trail left by the fox coupled with his finally coming to rest to take a break tell a story of survival in winter. Much of the fox's diet in winter is small mammals that live in a network of burrows at the bottom of the snow pack. Note also the area in his tracks where he made a plunge looking for a meal. Image size is 11" x 16.3" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Eagle Sibling Rivalry, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Eagle_Sibling_Rivalry.jpg

Eagle Sibling Rivalry

There is a Bald Eagle nest on the south side of the road not far from the east entrance to the park. There is no parking or standing allowed for about a quarter-mile near the nest in order not to disturb or threaten the birds. However, you can park to the west of the area and hike back to the edge of the exclusion zone and quietly observe the nest. When this picture was taken, there were two young Bald Eagles minding the house while mom and dad were out. One of the birds was showing off for the other...kind of "in your face" if you will...strutting his stuff by hopping from branch to branch, spreading his wings, etc. The other bird just sat and calmly watched. I couldn't help but be guilty of a little anthropomorphism and see some sibling rivalry on display. Image size is 11" x 16.3" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.

Three Amigos, Matted & Mounted, $37.00

Three_Amigos_1.jpg

Three Amigos

There is a trail that runs on the east side of the Yellowstone River between Fishing Bridge and Lehardy's Rapids...part of the old Howard Eaton Trail. As with most trails in the park, once you've traveled a few hundred yards you experience a very different Yellowstone than that found on the roads and boardwalks...you pretty much have the place to yourself. On this particular hike (about 6 miles round trip), we encountered only bison and elk on our journey. The trail hugs the Yellowstone River for the first half-mile or so. On this stretch, waterfowl are abundant. I watched these three White Pelicans ( the "Three Amigos") go about their morning feeding. What caught my eye was the synchronous behavior of the birds...the lead bird would initiate a dive and all three would execute simultaneously. This is the first of two pictures...see the next picture in the album, also. They can also be purchased as a pair at a discount...see the "combo" listing in the album. Image size is 10.2" x 16.3" on a 16" x 20" mat and backer.
