Re: June 13 - July 12th

The trophic cascade caused by the introduction of the lake trout has been in effect for years. It's not something that just popped up this season... it's just that more articles are finally being written about it now. Eagles were killing cygnets going back several years (you notice the park service ...

Idaho Birds & Other New PNW Photos

I've updated my ongoing Pacific Northwest 2018 gallery with photos from my May Idaho and Montana visits, as well as a few miscellaneous shots from my recent San Juan Islands tour (where I photographed all the foxes ). View the full gallery here. Here's a short preview: A fox kit peeks out of the gra...

San Juan Island Foxes

I enjoyed a short tour locally with a client last week. We went in search of the red foxes of the San Juans Islands, and had great success. These foxes come in a variety of colors and are quite striking. The kits are on verge of becoming independent, so they were quite active for us. I've uploaded a...

Ireland 2018

I took a family trip to Ireland in late April/early May. Though it was more of a casual trip, I did bring one camera body along to capture a few of the cultural, historical and natural sites we visited. It was a fun trip, with some nice weather that allowed us to get out on foot a fair amount. It wa...

Re: Mt Washburn or Avalanche?

Can't answer your question, as I haven't done Avalanche. However, it's important to note that the park service just sent out a notice that Washburn is going to close for the rest of the season (maintenance and repair projects) around the beginning of July. Not sure if this affects your plans.

Thanks guys. Rick, it was nice to meet you fleetingly. Hopefully we don't see that bear coming up in any official park reports any time soon.

Max's Spring 2018 Trip Report, Days 10 & 11 (June 6 & 7)

http://www.maxwaugh.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/moose4062.jpg June 6, 2018 Thus far we’ve carried on a pretty good streak of fulfilling my clients’ wildlife goals on this tour. We’ve produced a lot of “firsts” and some thrilling moments already this week. Still, I wasn’t sure of our chances of l...

Re: Max's Spring 2018 Trip Report: Days 8 & 9 (June 4 & 5)

http://www.maxwaugh.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/bear3054.jpg June 4, 2018 I came this close to missing both of my alarms Monday morning. Can you blame me? It was 3:30am. I stumbled around, found my clients and our van, and we hit the road bound for Yellowstone Lake. Grizzly bears were on the age...

Re: Max's Spring 2018 Trip Report: Days 4 - 7 (June 1 - 3)

http://www.maxwaugh.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/bear3787.jpg June 1, 2018 My final “free” day before the start of my photo tour activities wasn’t quite as easy going and relaxed as I’d like. I did make it out in the morning, knowing that I’d have to return home to tackle some obligations at midd...
