Hi everyone. The folks at MindShift Gear sent me a couple of their newest "big lens" photo packs for review. These are the new MP bag designs, an updated take on the Moose Peterson top flap design (a style some might also recognize from the old Gura Gear bags that are no longer made).

I was able to test these bags out in Yellowstone and South America in recent months, and have written up an extensive review for those that are considering getting a new photo pack.

Read the review here.

By the way, Your owl shots are truly awesome.

We never did get much of shot this past June. Just a couple of an owlet by Calcite, but it was way back in the woods.

That is a Male Western Tanager.
We were driving around Yellowstone Lake on our 2010 trip to YNP and it was a dreary, rainy day...and all of sudden we saw this burst of color. Loved the contrast of the shot.

Mule Deer Doe watching Fox hunt her fawns. I think she may have been spooked by proximity to Road and People.

Fox Jumping Back from a sage bush. Gave the initial impression it may have had a snake cornered.

Wanted to show a little more of the episode.

Dorothy, I agree whole heartedly that the crowd situation is out of control sometimes. There were two Rangers working this site, telling people to stay back. They even put out some cones to show where to stay behind and people would still "crash "the scene trying to get the selfie. At one point the older male Ranger told a young man to get back and the guy responded he was not afraid of a Fox. I secretly wished the Fox would have nipped him and he would have had to go through a Rabies shot series!!! Secretly :lol:

BTW, One of the Rangers said the Picnic Area Fox had been fed by people and was no longer showing any fear of humans.

Some of our bird shots. The Tanager was an awesome opportunity on a gray day. The YNP Grouse just seem to find us. :D

Thanks, the FB page I am following did not want to share the location with me in fear I, or someone who saw the location would steal it, which I understood. I found it the hard way. From West Yellowstone, it was on the other side of the Madison along the first side road. I was fortunate in that I wanted to photograph it while lit by the Sun and the vegetation still in the shade. Found it just in the nick of!! This was at the end of May this year.

Thanks for the tips! We know we won't see all the animals I listed, just wanted to get some up to date info on possible whereabouts.

We plan on doing a couple hikes...definitely want to do Mt. Washburn, and was also looking at the Lamar River trail. Might do Uncle Tom's Trail as it is short, but should provide some great photo opportunities! Any hiking suggestions? We are fairly inexperienced hikers, and my wife had meniscus surgery in April, so nothing too lengthy or strenuous (Washburn may be a stretch already).
