The Wild Side of Yellowstone

I tracked this guy for over two hours through the wilderness. He knew I was following him for sure as we would move from trees to fields then back to trees. After the first 10 minutes, it was obvious that he was a million times more agile... and I was a million times more dirty. After the event, not only was I covered in dirt and leaves, but it took me half an hour to figure out where in the world the road and my car was!

    LOL. Omg Trey, you are too much. You do such dangerous stunts just to get any shot. If i can put a caption on this guy it would say "fine, take it, take it all you want, just leave me alone!"

    You have a wonderful sense of adventure and humor AND the talent with photography--WOW! .....That almost reads like a fortune from a fortune cookie.

    Hermoso animal y buena historia.
  • Loren Kahle 7y

    Gorgeous! Weren't you the least bit worried that he might come after you? 200mm isn't that far away. Great capture!
  • Patrick 7y

    Its is amazing how we photographers have a complete (or nearly complete) disregard for our safety when trying to get the shot.

    This turned out very well. I would have been afraid that he would have come after me. But judging by the look in his eyes, he seems almost bored by it all.

  • Nancy Love 7y

    beautiful animal
  • thnkfst 7y

    This is such an amazing shot. I think he looks like he wants you to leave and is not amused by your presence...

    What a lucky day!

    Excellent, and the best way to find where you are is to get yourself lost.
