The Wild Side of Yellowstone

I tracked this guy for over two hours through the wilderness. He knew I was following him for sure as we would move from trees to fields then back to trees. After the first 10 minutes, it was obvious that he was a million times more agile… and I was a million times more dirty. After the event, not only was I covered in dirt and leaves, but it took me half an hour to figure out where in the world the road and my car was!

    Nice shot and what an expression. Btw, how far you stood from this guy and is it just him only? I suppose they are in groups. And is there any big stuff on the left, because i can see it was covered with shadows.

    Haha thanks! This one was not in a group… all by his lonesome. I think I was probably about 20 feet away with a 200mm lens.

    Whoever you are (Hello!), you are a photographic genius. Thank you SO much for sharing these brilliant photos with the rest of the world. (That last statement should be good for YAHOO’s ego! :) But to you, you deserve the sentiment. And far more.

    Thanks again.

    Absolutely gorgeous shot! Just wanted to delurk and let you know that I thoroughly enjoy your site.

    I would swear that’s a coyote rather than a Wolf.
    Would also explain why it was on its own.

    I thought it was a wolf at first too but I think Karen might be right. As she said, it would be very strange to see a wolf on its own.

    Thanks! This guy is a coyote — he has a big and flat tail that flopped behind him when he ran…

    Coyote: “Alright, fine. Take my picture already and quit following me!”

    I love the look on his face. He looks real impressed. Great pic and fun story behind it.
