Bison are back out on the move and I found a big herd of them on my way back from Grand Teton National Park the other night perfectly posed on a ridge as the last light of day was hitting Sheep Mountain, aka The Sleeping Indian. - Continue reading

In making another trip up into the interior of Grand Teton National Park to find the bears, I came up empty yet again.

Thinking I would be seeing plenty of scenes like that, I kept driving to get where I was going and have since been kicking myself for not stopping and getting the picture. Well last night after hanging up my show at Pearl Street Bagels, I was on my way home and saw almost the exact same scene!

Several moose have been hanging out in the creeks just south of the Buffalo Fork River and Moran, Wyoming. This one in particular was perfectly posed so I had a clear shot through some of the willow trees, giving me quite a few great shots of her. - Continue reading
