LATEST IMAGES - YELLOWSTONE1
Four days after returning from Tanzania I found myself on a plane to Yellowstone National Park. I had already been to Yellowstone during the Autumn but wanted to go back in Winter to try and capture 'frosty Bison' shots. The journey via Chicago, Detroit and finally into Jackson Hole seemed to take for ever, especially as we were 3 hours late. The temperature was also slightly cooler than Tanzania but it was good to see real snow and ice. Our small group consisted mainly of landscape photographers but I was allowed to take wildlife pictures occasionally and I did humour them by attempting some landscape images.
BALD EAGLE IN TREE
This image was taken form a horse drawn sledge while visiting the Elk refuge at Jackson Hole. It was obviously used to the sledges passing under the tree as the Eagle unfortunately wouldn't fly.
BALD EAGLE TAKING OFF
This Eagle was the exact opposite of the one above. I had just composed a small Eagle in big landscape image when, as I pressed the shutter, the Eagle took off. Still with a heavy crop, I feel it has made a reasonable image.
AMERICAN DIPPER LANDING
A small stretch of open water, no more than 50 yards long, in the Lamar Valley had around half a dozen Dippers feeding from the edge of the ice. They also spent quite a bit of their time in squabbling with each other.
