Yellowstone Elk

January 17, 2009

Hey everybody,

Now that my trip has come to an end, I’ll begin the daunting task of processing all of my photos! Stay tuned to my blog, as I’ll be sharing images almost daily over the next few months. There’s also a ton of shooting I’d like to do in my home area, so that’ll keep me busy as well.

Here’s a Rocky Mountain Elk I photographed in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. He was HUGE! Well, actually, I’m sure some of you have seen bigger. It was the biggest I have ever seen, though. I’d love to go back in a few years. I can’t think of a single place I’d rather be in the winter.

Coyote Chase- Pt. 1

January 10, 2009

Hey everybody,

I’ve made it to Ohio. His bird-ness Sir Matthew Studebaker has been kind enough to let me crash at his place tonight. We’re getting something like a foot of snow here in the next 24 hours, so I’m going to go out shooting waterfalls in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It should be nice to get to shoot some falls with a fresh coat of snow! I’m also going to try my hand at a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers that have been hanging around Matthew’s feeders. Hopefully that will work out too. After a quick visit across the border tomorrow, I’ll finally be headed home!

Anyway, here’s the first of a few shots I made of there two Coyotes. I found them in the Lamar Valley area of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. One of their friends had been attacked and killed by wolves just a few moments before. The one in the back was clearly unhappy with the other, and they fought it out for a little bit! It was truly spectacular to witness this.
