Wolvencall's Yellowstone Photography

Post by Wolvencall » Sat Nov 07, 2015 9:36 am

Disclaimer many of the photos of the predators were zoomed in many times after using a 300x zoom on my nikon camera, please remember to stay at least 100 yards away from wildlife such as bears and wolves and 25 yards away from other wildlife, please practice safe wildlife watching and photography and respect the animal you're watching. P.s. yellowstone has advised people not to take selfies with wildlife.

This was a cow elk and a young bull we saw out of a herd of about ten cow elk with youngsters on the way up to the northern gate this july

A sow with her two COY (cubs of the year) returning to a kill they discovered, the bison was most likely hit by a car the ranger told us.

This is 755M of the wapiti lake pack he was out hunting while his mate stayed home to watch the pups as they were still a little too young for both of the parents to be gone at that time. He had snuck up on our wolf watching group as he had headed up through the trees about 25 yards away from the pullout while we were all looking out towards the rendezvous point, it was shocking as he dared to go so close to people to get away from the road, the poor thing, there was a huge amount of tourists stopping and trying to spot him which would often block their road path, they almost need a the type of setup in hayden as they have in lamar to stop cars from pulling off the road or stopping except in designated pullout areas to allow the wolves to cross more safely. it was a wonderful time though as i got to meet many frequent wolf watchers here and learned a lot I also got an official wolf ambassador pin from a wolf interpreter i was talking to while watching out for the lamar canyon pack a few days later. I know it was only for knowing how to properly watch the wildlife and loving wolves but it was a wonderful moment. sorry for the blurry photos of 755M my whole body was trembling badly as i took photos of him, this was a major moment in my life and it affected me down to the bone, there will never be another experience as wonderful as seeing your very first wild wolf.

This is a fox we saw coming back from an uneventful day of wolf watching in hayden, he was out mousing and had found multiple mice, lucky vulpine!

Wow I'm extremely jealous of you, I've never been to Yellowstone, only parts of the Rockies. Great shots here, you have pictures of animals I'm dying to see in real life and take pictures of!

I chuckled.

These are all really nice shots, the weather was in your favour as well. I particularly like the photo of the fox; I've honestly never seen a fox that looks like that. The bears are really cute, too. Thank you for sharing these.

yeah haha, I never thought people would do such a thing but some people have already been hurt by bison for being to close to them and taking selfies with them, this old man fox seemed to still be shedding his winter coat but I could be wrong. We were just lucky at times we'd get up at 4 or 5 am and head out and often times not get back to our cabin until 9 or 10pm but there were times when the rain and wind hit hard in the valleys and wed have to hole up in the truck

Woah!! The pictures you took are amazing! Since the day I joined the community and played WQ, I acquired a need to travel and go to Yellowstone, too bad that's not possible for me at the moment haha, but looking at pictures someone else took helps and makes me more eager to one day go there.

Let me tell you it's most definitely worth it but you need to be willing to get up around 4 or 5 and be able to stay up later and be in the field most of the day.

Man, Yellowstone is still on my list of places I would love to visit. You truly have some remarkable shots of the wildlife there. Also, I love your foggy morning shot.
I appreciate you mentioning proper wildlife photography etiquette as well. I keep hearing news more and more of people trying to take selfies with wildlife, or just being close to wildlife in general. You're just asking for trouble. =/
