Re: Thoughts on a Bison in a Snowstorm

Congratulations again Max! Remember when we were in Patagonia shooting the Puma with two cubs in the light snow with the blackened bush? Did you happen to try any snow streaks during that session? I was busy trying to just get a sharp photo of all three pumas but I remember enjoying the effect of th...

Re: April 17th Through April 29th

Thanks for the comprehensive report. Lots of bears and moose! Good to know the road construction is finishing up on the west side.

Re: Brief Park Update

Thanks for the report Mike. I had the option to stay a bit longer bit glad I headed south when I did. It was crazy how those antelope suddenly appeared enmass all over the park. Sometimes in herds and others just sprinkled singly all of the meadows and hills, but all visible on the same day. We noti...

Re: Tanzania 2019 Birds

The weaver and the roller are just startling pictures! My favorites for sure. I have never seen that type of owl before either, what a great shot that is. Looks like you had good light also for these sessions.

Re: April Bike Trip and Opening Day

Thanks guys, I have been lurking for years reading all the YNP reports and only posting in the Non Yellowstone Discussions for a while now. So glad I could return to the park and actually share something in the Yellowstone Trip Reports forum. I am using a 500mm Canon lens that I purchased from Bill ...

April Bike Trip and Opening Day

My daughter and I biked the part of the park that was open to human powered methods April 17-18th. Then we drove to OF and Canyon on Friday opening day. Prior to that we acclimated to the altitude by cruising the Upper loop road in search of wildlife. There was a lot going on in the park. By staying...

Re: Owl Monday

John,
Great capture on the owl stretching its wings. I often see the GHO's do that but have never captured it.

Rik,

Is that a single Long eared that you found. Out here in the winter desert they can congregate in groups, sometimes up to ten. Just wondering what you have in Fla.

Re: Owl Monday

Short Eared Owl, Mission Bay, San Diego. A few birds entertained city folks for over a month in February 2018.

Patagonia in May

Last Spring I joined Max Waugh on his Patagonia tour to look for Pumas. Mountain Lions had long been on my wildlife want list since I had never seen one in the wild. In 2016, Max posted a trip report on this forum of his Patagonia visit that was all new to me. Prior to that report, I thought Patagon...
