Marty’s photo of the day #2894: My favorite bison photos are those taken in the winter, when they are white with frost. I plan to go to Yellowstone National Park in the winter sometime soon. In the meantime, here’s an extreme close-up for you. Just imagine how much cooler he’d be with a frosty face.
Marty’s photo of the day #2892: Photographing Yellowstone National Park’s geological features in a way that is different from how everyone else does it is a challenge. This is Mammoth Hot Springs, one of the park’s must-sees. I did my best to make my photo unique, by capturing the hot springs and snow together and […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2891: Last week I posted two stories about the two pairs of goldeneye ducks I watched in Yellowstone National Park, fighting over a small open section of an ice-covered lake, so I won’t repeat them here. But this photo shows the most humorous part of the fight (no ducks were […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2886: Yesterday, I shared a story about essentially hiking into two black bears in a narrow Yellowstone National Park valley. The photo (see #2885) with that post showed the male bear, with a black coat. This photo shows his companion, with a brown coat. This bear didn’t stand up to […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2885: Last weekend, in Yellowstone National Park, we were going to hike up an old-favorite closed road that Deb and I had hiked before. Then I spotted an unmarked trail going off to the side and suggested we follow it instead. The trail went into a narrow valley and eventually […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2884: Here’s another from the goldeneye duck battle royal I photographed last Saturday after hiking to Trout Lake in Yellowstone National Park. At first I was disappointed, because the lake was frozen, and we saw no signs of wildlife. But at the far end of the lake was a small […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2885: While in Yellowstone National Park this past weekend, I had two experiences where I stood stationary while an animal approached closer and closer, to the point that I’d never before been so close to that species in the wild. Later this week, I’ll share the bear close encounter. Today, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2883: Every time Deb and I visit Yellowstone National Park, we experience something amazing—and it’s not necessarily the wolves or the grizzlies. This past Saturday we hiked up to Trout Lake, which we had to ourselves. At first I was disappointed because the lake was frozen and we saw no […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2824: Who knew that grizzly bears were terrified of bison? Deb and I watched this mother and her cubs climb down a mountainside and cross a wide field. Suddenly the mother stopped, stood tall, sniffed, and quickly led her cubs in another direction. Moments later, a huge bison came into […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2442: I had the privilege of watching this momma grizzly and her cubs for about twenty minutes. They came down the side of a mountain and lingered on their way across the valley floor. They finally took off when a huge bison wandered their way. (Photographed in Yellowstone National Park)
