This killdeer was patrolling the shoreline of Lake Yellowstone, spending most of its time on the semi-submerged rocks just beyond the shore.

I saw this raven land on the stump and was hoping to photograph it when it took off.  Luckily it didn’t sit there too long so I was ready when it took flight.

Chipmunk On Rock

This chipmunk was scurrying among the rocks of the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park.  It stopped on a nice sunny rock long enough for me to take this photo.


On The Prowl

This black bear slowly wandered through a meadow while we watched it from a safe distance.  I wish the lighting had been better but that’s one of the challenges of wildlife photography.

A black bear and her two cubs look for food among fallen timber.  While we watched they periodically stopped and clawed at the fallen trees.  I can only assume they were after the insects inside the logs.

As hot mineral water seeps out of the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park it leaves tiny layers of minerals.  The heat of the water provides an ideal environment for bacteria, which grow in colorful mats over the wavy mineral deposits.  The end result is an amazing display of color and texture.
