Observing insects under the microscope is fascinating! Diptera is the Greek word for two, flies fall under the category of diptera "true flies" hard to tell but check out the sponge sucking mouth! Buzz buzz.

I felt small on taking in the view of this canyon and the mighty Lower Yellowstone Falls. At the top of the falls on the right is a viewing platform with people that gives a sense of scale. #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #nature#landscapephotography #waterfalls
Everyone loves Norris geysers basin, but there’s another trail that goes to Back Basin. 
There are innumerable geysers and springs on this trail. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is lesser know but equally beautiful Cistern Spring, which normally is blue from which water continually overflows and floods the pine forest 🌳 . •

Slowly, and in spite of his massive size, almost silently the huge bull bison post holes his way up the snow-covered hillside as he rises from the Lamar River canyon and suddenly appears in the sage behind me. Turning my camera to focus in his direction I squeeze the trigger on the camera as bellows of warm steam flow into the icey air surrounding his stoic face. 🐺 OldWolfPhoto.com. 🐺  #nature  #wildlife  #animals #natgeo  #bears #naturephotography  #outdoorsphotography #wildlifephotography  #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonenps #nanpapix #natgeo_wild_hd #global4nature #elk #deer #bison #buffalo #foxes #coyotes #wolves #yellowstoneforever #wildlifephotos  #wolf  #dogs #wildliferehab #moose #wildlifeperfection #nationalparks #whitetails

Here's a fun #tbt to the Mammoth InstaMeet back in September. The elk put on quite a show...and thankfully no cars were damaged (this time) and no people were tossed (this time...) Thanks to the rangers who monitor the situation and keep everyone safe!

River otters rely heavily on fish for their diet. Here are a couple on the Lamar River feeding on a Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Cutthroats are a keystone species in Yellowstone of which dozens on animals rely on as an important food source. These native fish have seen a major decline over the last 3-4 decades because of illegally introduced predatory lake trout. A top conservation priority for the park is to employ strategies to restore cutthroat trout closer to historical numbers, particularly in Yellowstone Lake. Yellowstone Forever has been a longtime supporter of the Native Fish Project. Learn more at www.yellowstone.org/trout.

A note on Game Farms...
.
Photographers often have to try for years, and then wait for hours in harsh weather conditions to organically capture a portfolio quality photograph of a wild wolf engaging in natural behavior. .
I have spent 8 years photographing and guiding in Yellowstone which works out to over 512 days or more than 6,144 hours. Each and every time that I am blessed to observe and photograph wild wolves with clients, it is a life-changing experience for everybody. Wolves are difficult to photograph in the wild, but that is what makes each rare encounter and resulting photographs magical. .
The proliferation of captive wolf photographs, and game farms in general, casts a deep shadow on all of us who are dedicated to keeping the wild in wildlife photography and being ethical in all phases of our craft. I believe nature photographs should accurately represent a truthful moment in the natural world. I take a stand against game farms, for their exploitation and abuse of wildlife and the resulting deceptive photographs.

The third and final shot of this week's Yellowstone Park series is a Coyote trudging through deep snow last February.  A long, thick coat of fur protects it during the harsh winter months.⠀

A welcoming melee of wagging tails and full bellies. Some of the most impactful wildlife photographs capture intimate and gentle interactions between family members. Long lenses and careful observation can allow for photographs without stress or effect on the wildlife's behavior. In the wintery pre-dawn gloom, our snow-coaches slowed and parked on the groomed road, well back from the carcass site. The wind was blowing a gale, the temperature a bitter 0ºF. A client and I each took four tripods and quietly walked down the road, took a hard right off into the 2 1/2 foot deep trail, and to the trench where we quickly set up all the tripods, overlapping the legs so as to form a tight, smaller footprint and to leave room for others. No wolves were present when we left the coaches, but we now saw four wolves in the blowing snow, watching us curiously from the road.  We made our way back to the coaches silently celebrating what we were blessed to witness. From the coaches we all watched as a scrum of wolves writhed and tumbled and playfully mauled each other in the road in front of the coaches. When it was light enough to photograph, we waited for a snowmobile or another coach to come by which caused the wolves to run back into the trees.  With no wolves visible, 8 of us left the coaches, lined up single file, (in the order our tripods had been set up) and quickly and quietly made our way to our tripods and within seconds had our cameras attached and ready for action. Within the hour, the wolves began appearing in the trees across the road from us and came and went from the carcass as we photographed for most of the day. Although photographing the wolves at the carcass at the time was more exciting, I preferred the photos I captured of the wolves coming in from the trees.

By the afternoon of the third day, the bison carcass you see in this photograph was nearly consumed by the 20 member strong Wapiti Wolf Pack. Snow vehicles returning to West Yellowstone stopped up and down the road, blocking access and stranding some of the pack on one side and other members of the pack on the other side. There was nothing we could do to convince people to give them room to cross. It was so frustrating! The wolves already across the road and in the flats howled for the ones in the trees to join them as it was time to move on, but the ones in the trees were not having it and howled in return. There were too many people and vehicles. Finally, we saw a wolf from the flats backtrack and cross 200 yards behind the vehicles, out of sight of most of the people. It went into the trees and led the stranded wolves across the road. I am positive the Mollie side of the family were in the trees and that the Hayden side came to the rescue. Please, if you see wildlife trying to cross the road give them space - a minimum of 100 yards.

Who remembers seeing these as a kid? Not sure I ever ate at a Big Boy's restaurant, but I recall seeing these iconic statues everywhere when I was younger. Fast forward to this past summer, when my wife and I were vacationing in Wyoming. Just exploring the areas around Yellowstone and we happened to drive past this. I actually did a u-turn and drove back to get this shot. What's the strangest thing that you've gone back for to get a photo of?

Yellowstone is one of the best places in the world to watch, hear and photograph wolves. Here, four of the Wapiti Pack Wolves take a short break after a successful hunt. The white wolf in the middle is a 3rd generation white alpha female; her Grandmother was the alpha of the Hayden Valley Pack and her Mother was the alpha of the Canyon Pack. In the summer the pack calls Hayden Valley home, but in the winter they must range far in search of prey. Historically, these three packs had smaller numbers than others in Yellowstone, with smaller litters and fewer pups reaching adulthood. Perhaps the combination of a less than stellar territory and lackluster parenting was to blame. The Hayden and Canyon Packs no longer exist, but the Wapiti Pack continues to claim the same territory and den in Hayden Valley. These wolves are used to crossing roads and seeing people. The Mollie Wolf pack, on the other hand, claims roadless Pelican Valley as its territory and is not used to crossing roads or seeing people. However, the Mollie’s are known as the bison hunters. To the North, in the Lamar Valley, Alpha Male number 755 was a wonderful parent and leader, but he was forced to abdicate his pack when his mate, the 06 female, was taken in a trophy hunt. He eventually made his way to Hayden Valley and started the Wapiti Pack with the white female you see here. They had two successful litters and the pack grew. When the second litter was months old, two Mollie males moved in, forcing the elder 755 out and took over his pack. They did not kill him, and 755 was smart enough to stay away and out of sight. He was seen on several occasions sneaking back to visit his pups. When this photo was taken in January 2018 the Wapiti Pack was 20 or 21 members strong! Adding bison hunters and good parenting to the pack made a huge difference.
.
The day this photograph was taken we had the wolves entirely to ourselves for over four hours.

This is Cindy Goeddel @goeddelphotography taking over for the week.

The Mollie Wolf pack, on the other hand, claims roadless Pelican Valley as its territory and is not used to crossing roads or seeing people. However, the Mollie’s are known as the bison hunters. To the North, in the Lamar Valley, Alpha Male number 755 was a wonderful parent and leader, but he was forced to abdicate his pack when his mate, the 06 female, was taken in a trophy hunt. He eventually made his way to Hayden Valley and started the Wapiti Pack with the white female you see here. They had two successful litters and the pack grew. When the second litter was months old, two Mollie males moved in, forcing the elder 755 out and took over his pack. They did not kill him, and 755 was smart enough to stay away and out of sight. He was seen on several occasions sneaking back to visit his pups. When this photo was taken in January 2018 the Wapiti Pack was 20 or 21 members strong! Adding bison hunters and good parenting to the pack made a huge difference. . The day this photograph was taken we had the wolves entirely to ourselves for over four hours. . This is Cindy Goeddel @goeddelphotography taking over for the week. . #wolf  #wildwolf  #wolves  #graywolf  #canislupis  #wapitipack  #canid  #thecanidproject  #yellowstone  #winter  #YellowstoneForever  #wildlifephotography  #wildlife  #winterinyellowstone  #nanpapix  #snow 
Citizen science is really cool! There's several types of citizen science projects going on here in Yellowstone! No carabids photographed here but here's a closer look of ants and a spider!

Y'all my heart is full.

I seriously adore this group of incredible humans. They're insanely smart, incredibly motivated and passionate, tons of fun, and downright amazing.
**
I have never once regretted making this move. I love that I get to call Gardiner my home, I appreciate that I get to raise my son in a small town, I'm ecstatic that I have a social life again, I appreciate that when out and about in town I can spark up a conversation with at least one person I know, and the community of people here could never be surpassed.

For a bunch of different reasons, the way humans depict and perceive coyotes is mostly negative; they are seen as being untrustworthy and dangerous.

When I see a coyote, I see a wild animal that requires a certain level of respect and understanding. The combination of those two things will almost always result in coexistence.

They are wild. They are predators. Their ability to adapt is unmatched. They can thrive just about anywhere - even in big cities. They’re most likely thriving in the city that you live in right now, and that’s completely ok.

What do you know about coyotes? What do you think or feel when you see them?

(4/4) It was late and I was alone with six carcasses, a drowning bison and ravens loudly publicizing the whole ordeal. I had forgotten my bear spray and I was a bit jumpy, especially when I heard a twig snap. It was Daniel, my friend, my colleague, and my driver. He had decided to join me in an act of support. We agreed my idea was worth a try. We moved directly towards the fatiguing bull and he immediately turned away.
.
Swimming downstream, he gained his footing and slowly labored up and out of the river and stood dripping and exhausted in the cold. Dan and I cheered and then held our breath, waiting for the old guy to summon up the energy to shake. Finally, he tentatively shook just his head and then, a few seconds later, he shook his whole body more vigorously. Walking in the trail of the other bison, he disappeared into the trees.
.
Altering wildlife behavior is something that I do not take lightly, because I believe that nature is best left to its own rhythms. I could've let the bull continue to struggle, and surely drown from exhaustion, or I could see if I could help him by just walking a few steps forward. Wildlife is at risk due to human activities and we have a negative impact on wildlife every day, so in this specific case I chose to help. There were six other carcasses the predators could eat, and I stand by my decision to save the old bull.
.
Cindy Goeddel here, @goeddelphotography, and this is Day 3 of my week-long takeover.  Thanks for following along. Wildlife needs us!

A little throwback today. On a rainy day in Yellowstone during our YA class an accidental setting change in my camera came out like an old 1950's postcard. Whoops! Accidents seem to be my favorite photos sometimes....

(3/4) I jumped out of the coach to photograph, the clients declined. I tried to shake the thought that I was photographing number seven. After a few long distance photographs, I remembered the snow-shoe trail we had made the day before and set off down the hard-packed trail in the waning light to document the struggle for survival. I could hear his labored breathing and see his nostrils flaring with effort. He used his head like a battering ram against the ice, but he was unable to break through. By now he had been in the icy water for nearly 20 minutes, and he was tiring. His thick fur was icing up in the cold. The ravens abruptly got noisy as if they were telegraphing the soon arrival of a seventh carcass. The bison determinedly kept trying to break through the ice and come ashore directly, but it was hopeless and he was losing the battle. I knew if he turned and swam downstream 100 yards he could come ashore easily like the bison had the day before. What if I moved closer, would my unwelcome presence move him downstream to safety?

(2/4) The following evening we stopped our snow-coach where we could see the carcasses.  Upstream, at the crossing spot, was a bull bison standing near or on the ice looking across the river. Two coyotes appeared out of the trees and moved towards the old bull.  He did not budge. The coyotes pushed harder and the bull took a half step and both the bison and the ice held firm. The coyotes continued on their opportunistic way. Had the coyotes tried this maneuver before? Had the tricksters learned to herd the bison to their watery grave? How many, if any of the six dead downstream were the direct result of the coyotes?
.
Swipe for a video of the bison.
.
We decided to watch the bull a bit longer and sat in the coach with binoculars raised as the light faded. Suddenly the ice broke and the bison disappeared into the inky river. He was completely submerged, but came up and began swimming the most direct route to the other side where he encountered a thick barrier of ice well before his hooves could touch the rocky bottom. Only his massive head was above water as he tried repeatedly and without success to break/swim through the ice that had abruptly brought his crossing, and maybe his life, to an end.

Though they don’t get as much love as their fellow canids, we always enjoy seeing coyotes on the move in @yellowstonenps! This one was recently spotted in Lamar Valley.

These resilient animals are just 1/3 the size of wolves and weigh between 25-35 pounds.

Through the steam. A photo of a girl walking through the steam of the geyser features around Grand Prismatic Spring at sunset early October 2018.
While my sister was visiting we made the drive from Gardiner to Grand Teton National Park and back. On the return drive we made stops at Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. It was my first sunset at the colorful famous spring, and I managed to take this photo of this girl surround by the steam.

(1/4) On February 20, in a shallow bend of the Yellowstone River about 100 yards downstream from the spot the bison like to swim across, six bison carcasses lay tangled and frozen. A few ravens and bald eagles picked at the portions above the water, but for the most part the carcasses were intact and as solid as concrete.
.
We snow-shoed in to take a closer look at the carnage and found an old bison skull on the bank, and I promptly remembered the Spring before photographing a Grizzly on a bison carcass in the same area of the river. Perhaps this crossing is good in three seasons out of the four. While watching the birds and pondering the scene in front of me, two bull bison appeared out of the trees across the river from us several hundred yards upstream and proceeded to the crossing spot 100 yards upstream from the carcasses. The bull in the lead was older, larger and evidently wise. He stopped on the thick ice near the shore and looked across the dark river at the ice on the opposite bank and then slowly turned back to the snow on shore and moved downstream, not stopping again until he was almost directly in line with the carcasses. There he began his crossing, the smaller bull following. The ice did not cover the edges of the river here, nor was the water so deep that they had to swim. The bulls crossed easily and without incident, although they did cast anxious looks at their brethren on their way past. They clambered out, shook the water from their thick fur and walked along a bison trail into the trees and up towards the road.
