I like very much indeed! I've been hunting mountain goats around Yellowstone/Grand Teton for years -- only seen a few way up high on Baronett (got some really close at Glacier once!). Nothing like what you've got here -- SUCH great shots. And that fox is great, too, as are the birds. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, I have never seen mountain goats close enough for photos anywhere around Yellowstone! Good job!

What a handsome fox. Which highway were those goats close to?

More images for your consideration. All images have been cropped from original composition. Please let me know if you like.

Moose Wilson Road Fox

This guy/gal was in a big hurry. I was lucky to get a few of it. It did not appear to be happy about getting any photos made. I stopped the car and grabbed my handheld lens and did the best I could.

Badger in Sage

My wife was in the passenger seat taking a nice "environmental portrait" of some elk cows on Kelly Road. I was snoozing in the driver's seat when this furry explosion appeared on the scene. He was not happy about having any pictures made, and disappeared as soon as I went back to the car to get a longer lens.

These weren't in the Tetons proper, but on one of the highways heading into the park. Mama and kids.

Bluebirds in the spring are my favorite. The blue stands out in the green backgrounds, and you got a bonus with some yellow in there. Colorful!

Nope, wasn't you. Probably crossed paths throughout the day.

Well, if these are only acceptable, I better not ever post any of mine! Those are GREAT shots -- and yes, you get sympathy point for the Swainson's Hawk (of which you got gorgeous shots). Thanks for sharing!

Nice shots. Not sure if you want this, but here are a few corrections on the bird IDs: juvenile bald eagle, mountain bluebird and Swainson's hawk (a much less common sight than a red-tailed, and a nice find!).

Thanks for the corrections Max !

Nice shots! Wish I'd gotten to Teton this visit. But I knew I'd be coming back in September to get the moose with their racks.

I finally got to cutting a video from the day's footage. It looks like there were a few YNetters at this event. I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's perspective!

If you're on a larger screen, I recommend watching it on YouTube's site in Theater Mode or full screen.
