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 the streaks of snow across our viewfinders.

Very nice pose and shot. I never got to see her or mom this year. Just bad timing. So I'm glad you got a good one.
And, yes, I guess you remembered right.

Great shot TeeJay! We saw her several times during our spring trip, but never that close.

Nice job. Thanks for sharing.
We were driving on the East Entrance road looking for her and her mom and didn't see either. We were heading back towards Fishing Bridge going past Storm Point. There is a field across from the parking lot, and as we were nearing the forest on the north side of the road, I was looking at a nice bull bison on my left when my wife shouts "grizzly!" I stop and backed up and there she was along the tree line right in front of us. I stopped the car and took these shots while staying right at my car. She walked right in front of us across the road and into the field.

Fortunately at that time Storm Point was closed for the construction, as she headed into the woods near the trail. It was a great sighting!

I saw this posted elsewhere before I saw it here. I believe it was on weather.com and I recognized your name. I feel privileged that you still post here and let us enjoy in your success. Congrats and thanks for posting.

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.

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.

As many of you know, my photo of a bison in a snow storm won the Black and White category of the 55th annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

Today I published an article about the past encounters in Yellowstone that inspired the creation of this image, as well as my feelings about it.

We no longer have a Classified section, but I wanted to let everyone know that I'm selling my Canon 600mm lens. This is the primary lens I've used in Yellowstone (and elsewhere around the world) the past three+ years for wildlife photography. It's in good shape (minor paint chips and scratches on the exterior), and includes a black LensCoat cover as well as the original case and straps. It's recently been cleaned and service by Canon Professional Services.
