A Wolf in the mist
On my last morning in Yellowstone I got up really early and went to a location I had scouted the day before. It was a very foggy morning and I was hoping for some bison in the fog. Much to my surprise I did not find any Bison but soon I knew why as this lone Wolf emerged out of the fog.
A sliver of light
I found this Barred owl one evening in late summer inside of a large pine tree. At first she was in a darker area but after a failed hunting attempt she moved to another branch. Which just so happened to be where a small bit of light from the setting sun was coming through the bows.
Playing hide and seek with a young mink
This year for my birthday late in June I had an amazing experience with a family of mink. I came across three young mink playing under a pine tree with mom nearby. It didn't take long for the young ones to become curious of me and soon I found myself being part of their game.
It was a long night
On my way one morning to find a brood of Owlets I came across this Raccoon hanging out of a tree. He looked annoyed at me but at the same time kind of curious. I think he just had a long night of hunting and was having a hard time getting to sleep.
I found this young red tail hawk hunting on a small marshy area in a local park. I tried my best to get close to him without disturbing him but the dried leaves made it impossible. As you can tell from the expression on his face I was not sneaking up on him at all.
An awkward game of tag
This bull Elk had been hanging out in the tall grass a quite a distance from me. When suddenly this Coyote appeared near him the two began to drive each other towards the Madison river. Occasionally crossing in front of one another as they moved closer too me.
A bull Elk watching a cow
I found this male Elk towards the end of the day on the Madison river in Yellowstone national park. He had been eating some grass but his attention soon shifted too the female Elk across the river.
White Squirrel with blue eyes
I found this guy the other day while walking in one of my local parks. I had never seen a white squirrel with blue eyes before. I have seen plenty of Albino squirrels with redish eyes but never blue.
Bunnies on the Trail
I caught these Bunnies running down the trail late one evening on my way out of Blacklick woods metro park. I was surprised that they were running right at me and expected something to run out behind them chasing them. However nothing was chasing them they were just playing.
Young Garter snake
This was a young Garter snake that I caught sunning itself on a sidewalk in early may. I almost stepped on him and he slithered off into these leaves to hide. I grabbed my camera and went back to photograph him he posed quite nicely for me and I was able to get this shot.
