Thanks for the links to the videos. I agree that the second video sure looks like Felicia and Pepper. I only saw them twice this past year, but each time was special. Hopefully, things go well for them in the future.

Another new video. Although the photographer doesn't specifically state this is Felicia and Pepper, it sure looks like them to me.

Not my video, just providing a link for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGeXe6L39gg

Max,those are some great shots. I've always had a desire to take the hot air balloon ride but never had the courage. Glad you had a chance to do it.

I love the shot of the black wolf--those eyes!

I had three Yellowstone images make the cut this year. I'm going with this one as my favorite moment of the three, mainly because I had never seen these two species interacting before. It also helped the fawns were only a couple hours old, and I got to share the moment with my clients.

I envy you the opportunity with the otter!
Thanks Rik. Yeah, we were behind a tree but with a good view about 30 feet away and it just did its thing for close to an hour. Watched it swimming and diving before it caught a huge trout and proceeded to chow the whole thing down including the tail as the last piece. It also lapped up any pieces that had fallen in the grass or water. Then it scratched and groomed itself before rolling and covering itself in the grass on this narrow protrusion and curling up for a nap. Never had an experience like that with an otter.

Here are a few of our favorites. We don't match the quality of the the others that get posted here, but they're ours and it brings back such good memories that we enjoy.

The fox was playing 'possum lying there so still I thought he was sick or dying. A ground squirrel nearby thought so too, a fatal mistake. Quick as a flash the fox jumped up and had the squirrel. The second photo is after the squirrel was buried for a later snack.

The grizzly sow, Felicia as she has been named, put on quite the show for us on the fence. This is just one of the many poses she gave over a period of several minutes.

I'm cheating on the otter photos as they are actually from 2018. But since I have just recently learned how to post pictures, I'm putting them on. We got to see the otter catch and consume a large trout at Trout Lake.

Karen took most of the photos using a hand-held Fuji or Nikon.

Wow Rik! Those are superb. I was going to try and post something, but now I feel intimidated ;)

I've seen worse poses out of a marten. That must've been awesome.

It's time to share favorite images of the year. I'll have my own choices next week, but let's see what you've got. We can do a non-YS thread in the other forum as well.

Thanks for the update on Felicia and Pepper, Bill!

Pepper looks so healthy now. Great images!
Thanks, Jeff. Pepper really does look remarkably healthy considering what he went through. What an amazing story!

We saw Rosie on our very first trip in August 2008. It was dark and we were staying at Roosevelt. We just had a great wolf encounter in Hayden and hence, stayed a little too long so we were driving back in the dark. We were about a mile or so south of Tower when my wife yells "bear!!!" I hit the brakes and here comes Rosie (the ear tags gave her away) and her one surviving coy which was nicknamed "Choco."

The cub was coming right towards the car, probably to lick the bugs, when Rosie turned to him and grunted and he turned back and they went up the hillside. Amazing. The next day we reported the sighting to Ranger John, and later found out we were probably one of the last to see her alive. What a great experience for our first trip. That was one of the many reasons we've been coming back every year since.
