I love going to Yellowstone and the Teton’s for wildlife and landscape shooting. I go at least once a year and really try to go 2 or three times at different seasons. I have never been disappointed in what I have been able to capture. I have seen more of a variety of wildlife in its natural habitat in these two parks. I love seeing the bears and the wolves. You can see wolves in Yellowstone almost all the time in Lamar Valley. However this one was in winter and I was driving and saw what I thought was a coyote or wolf. This was in the lower elevation, I think due to snow it was more than likely following the food chain south, lol. I stopped the car and waited with a 500 mm lens. I stayed parked and still. Hoping he would keep coming my direction. He did, and he stopped when he saw a car, stopped long enough as he assessed the situation for me to get this shot. It was taken in the morning.

I have also seen wolves in Idaho and I love listening to them. I was able to hear them during my shoot of the northern lights in March, but unfortunately did not see any, of course it was a full moon plus the northern lights.

Many hate the wolves, but the one thing learned in Yellowstone is how nature keeps a balance, and because the wolves are a big part of that, more vegetation has been able to grow due to this balance. If humans kill everything they don’t like, they disrupt the natural balance, and that really does hurt all of us.

I have recently been featured in NYC at the Photographer’s Expo, and won a action category competition with SanDisk Extreme Team, October 2010. I was featured on National Geographic’s web site in August 2007, and was an International award winner in Las Vegas, Nevada in March 2008. This year I have been featured on Idaho Magazine in the October issue, In Idaho’s Blue Book, and in December will be featured on Outdoor Idaho’s web page..“The State of our Parks.” and show.
