Yellowstone part4

Afte a week of Photography I traveled down to the Grand Tetons. What is normally a 3 hour drive in the winter becomes 6 hours of driving on some snowy roads. We arrived in Jackson and went out to see if we could find a spot to shoot the sunset from. As we pulled into the Snake River overlook we spotted a red fox in the parking lot.  

We photographed this little fellow till he moved back down the hill into the forest.

It was a great finish to the trip with over an hour with this Fox. This years trip was a lot of fun and I am already looking forward to next years trip.

Winter in Yellowstone Part 3

This winter we had several opportunities to see some different animals. We where driving down the road and something caught my eye as it flashed by. I suddenly realized it was a Short Tail Weasel racing across the hillside.

These little Weasels are very quick and are a challenge to photograph. The Canon 1 dx mark 2 did a great job of keeping this little fellow in focus.

Some of the other small animals we had the chance to see included a squirrel that was racing around in some trees.

We also had several Coyote sightings but never had any chances to see them hunting Voles this year.

Hopefully next year will be better for the Coyotes. Next week more from Yellowstone.
