Why is it that when I’m at the cabin the moose are across the river and when anyone else is there they come knock on the door.  Trust me my little Canon is nothing to be afraid of.  That said here’s a couple of wildlife photos.

Seems like when we go into Yellowstone there’s always a big slow down usually for Bison or Elk or Deer.  This year both Elk and Bison.  Interesting story about a car full in foreigners

and the Bison, but will leave that for another time.  We actually pulled over to go check out the Elk because there were three moms and four baby’s.  You don’t see the baby’s everyday.  They were all lounging in the grass, but moms definitely at attention.

There was no shortage of wild life this year as we opened the cabin.  It was nice to be able to spend some time hanging out enjoying the show.  Ducks, moose and pelicans where all putting on a pretty good show.  The way the pelicans were eating I’m pretty sure I know why we didn’t see many fish.  By the time I finished taking pictures of the moose it was getting pretty late, it was after 9:00 and I was shooting at 6400 ISO so the pictures are getting a little grainy.  The pictures were taken handheld and the moose was moving so I didn’t have a lot of choice.  Hope you like them.

I haven’t been doing much wildlife photography lately.  Since I made a change in equipment  (I’ve moved to Canon) I don’t have a long lens.  The longest I’ve got is 135 mm. Wildlife photography is usually done with lenses that are 300 to 600 mm and it costs a lot of dough for a good one.  Wildlife was plentiful and somewhat willing to be shot with my Canon so I didn’t deny them.  My buddy got up close and personal with a moose while fishing, but I missed that one.  I really enjoy Island Park in the fall.  There is almost no one around, the animals are all less anxious, the fishing is awesome.  Here’s what I captured the end of September.  The bald eagle was perched in a tree at the edge of the river.  The ducks were everywhere on the river.  The squirrel was next the the trail we hike from the boat dock up to the fishing bridge.
