yes, black bears don't need to have a dark or black coat

they are a sea duck and float in and out of the white water diving after prey and standing on rocks

I found it quite difficult to get a good shot, here the male has just dived on the left of the female

moving target, white water you get the idea

they are found in Yellowstone for only a short period of time

Sitting at Bozeman International Airport ( Belegrade Mt ) hoping flights home better than flights out

Has a great time in Yellowstone with George and on my own

Ran into a young man using medium format Pentax, he was from Spokane if I remember right

One thing to remember about Yellowstone, the geothermal sites and Vistas are always there, the animals move at their own pace which may not correspond with your schedule


Old joke -

"You guys seen anything

Yeah if you were here ten minutes ago, the wolf pack was right there and the grizzly sow and Cub were on the other side of the road "

More later

yesterday PM, I came out of the park to the travel lodge in Gardiner to meet George who was driving in

after I finished checking in, I turned around and George introduced himself

what timing

we unpacked and then went back into the park

while waiting for the wolfs north of Slough Creek turn off, I grabbed some photos

a red tail hawk appeared

[ heavily cropped and pp ]

it was soaring a long way up

[ perhaps my best ever BIF ]

you better run

[ SOC ]

and I mean RUN

last year actually saw ( no chance to take photo ) two coyotes chasing away a wolf out on the eastern entrance road near Lake Yellowstone while on the Park's photo tour

guide said he had heard of what we saw but it was the first time in his long career that he actually saw it.

said most likely it was a lone wolf and the coyotes were protecting a den

_________________________

saw a wolf come down to the Yellowstone River and feed on duck/goose eggs

also saw a moose out in the Lamar Valley, a long way off

yes

I was very impressed when we went for our first time at the end of May last year

in addition to the " usual ", we saw mountain goats ( too far away for my set up), big horn sheep, eagle, osprey great horned owl, wolf, grizzly and almost full grown cub and a pine martin

I have to agree

most used by me, your experience may differ:

camera body

lenses

sling

supports - monopod/tripods

flash ( other than in body flash )

point being, concentrate on what you need for what you do

" if the creek don't rise " -

I will be rising early tomorrow to catch a flight from Kansas City to O'Hare in Chicago then to Bozeman International Air Port ( in Belgrade Montana, not Bozeman :confused: and yes I head east to go west, :confused: who am I to judge ?) and then drive south to Yellowstone National Park. I expect to fly back on May 21

and " if the creek don't rise" I expect to meet up with gaweidert for a time and enjoy the Park with him for a while

( unfortunately a third forum member had who planned to join us, but he will not be able to - here is hoping he gets well soon. )

___________________________

although I am not sure how often I will be uploading photos about the trip to this thread, I will do my best. not sure about WiFi inside the park

my encounter wish list starts with cougars ( they are there but not very likely at all) badger ( hey last year a group found one ) grizzly and black bear, bison, wolf, eagles, owls, osprey etc, etc, etc,

however my thoughts about trying out astrophotography for the first time appears to be not so good

new moon and expected cloud cover

wish us luck
