Grizzly in the Rain
What an incredible morning this was in the beautiful Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park. We watched this grizzly sow and her cub for over two hours, eating and sleeping. It was pouring rain and/or snow the entire morning, and I like how that added great texture to their fur. Here is mom with a little blade of grass in her mouth.
You've Got Something in Your Teeth
This cute little cub didn't come out from behind the tall grass very often, but I was happy to get a few shots. Here it is, soaking wet from the rain, chewing on some grass.

On the Lookout
It was so sweet to watch these two taking a nap together. Most of the time the cub was behind mama, but at one point it rested its head on her back, and I was able to get some really cute shots. I have a sequence of images that show the cub's eyes getting heavier and heavier until they are closed. A priceless morning and memory.
Morning Light and Shadow
I made this image on a cold morning in Grand Teton National Park, just as the sun was illuminating the tops of the trees. Love the long shadows in the snow.

The Raven's Nictitating Membrane
A nictitating membrane is a transparent or translucent third eyelid, which some animals possess to protect the eye from irritants and to moisten it. It moves horizontally across the eye.

For the Love of Honu
Honu is the Hawaiian word for turtle. It is a very special experience to see these guys come in from the ocean to rest on the beach. As always, we maintained a respectful distance from these beautiful creatures.

I captured this close-up of a cow moose after a rain storm in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, using a telephoto lens to maintain a proper distance between me and the animal. I like how the rain added texture to her hair.
