A few from June 2019

Post by TeeJay » Sat Oct 26, 2019 10:45 pm

Here are some pics from my June trip. I was using my Canon 60D (now retired) and my new (used) Canon 300mm f4 L IS lens for most of these shots. This is my first "L" lens and while I was still getting used to it, wow does it take great shots. Some shots were also taken with my wife's Canon T3i and her Sigma 18-250mm lens. I'd be happy to give the details of any of the shots.

That's one handsome wolf... I assume a pup or a yearling? The proportions don't look filled out yet. It almost looks like a melanistic coyote. ;)

That was one of the Junction Butte yearlings. We were on our way out of the park heading to Bozeman. We left from Cooke City and were driving along the NE Entrance road, and passed all of the watchers at the Picnic pullout. We decided to continue on as we had a great viewing experience the day before. As we were nearing Dorothy's pullout, a camper was stopped in the middle of the road, and I was going around him, he put his finger out the window and said "wolf!" I pulled into the pullout, dug out my binoculars and there she was walking along the beach of the Lamar. She was heading east, and then started heading right to the road.

We headed down to the institute and thought for sure she was going to cross the road, but instead she found a cached elk calf's head, picked it up and went back south. I did radio the sighting to Rick and he had someone come down. It was a great sighting with only a few of us there.
