Yellowstone, June 27th - 28th


So I simply had to make a quick trip down to the park for the Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarki) spawning. And was hoping for a few Otters too.

I was quite happy with how day one went and almost went home after day one; but I am so glad that I stuck it out and shot a second day, as it became an even better day.

The two day list is:
American Dipper
American Kestrel
Brewers Blackbird
Brown Headed Cowbird
Cliff Swallow
Common Merganser
Cutthroat Trout
European Starling
Grey Jay
Horned Lark
Mule Deer
Red tailed hawk
Red Winged Blackbird
Sandhill crane
Steller's Jay
Tree swallow
Uinta Ground Squirrel
Western Square-dotted Blue Butterfly
Wild turkey
Wolf (dot's)
Yellow-rumped Warbler
(Sorry for spelling errors, this list is kept on my iPod Touch)

Now if normally you don't head over to my full gallery, this is one trip that you will not want to pass by. There are some 400+ images that made the grade from this trip. Take the time to look, even if you just play it as a slideshow.

I met some great folks from all over the US, like I do most every trip, and actually did not mind the sun and warm weather (though clouds would of been nice for the Otters).

The 5DII worked great in YNP and I have some video that I will try to edit over the next few weeks and get online from this trip.

As always, thanks for looking at my photos. Please visit my recent trips gallery to see all of the photos from this trip, while you are there give a thumbs up to your favorites and feel free to leave comments there too, with 5 stars. I ask this not to have folks boost my ego, simply to help my images get more play on SmugMug. And so you can enjoy more images of YNP... Thanks.

Total trip was 429.5 miles and my Outback averaged 27.3 mpg.
