Just a few shots of wildlife around the Yellowstone and Glacier National Park area. These are the last few pictures of my trip...I promise! :D

Wow, Vinod, these are all wonderful captures. There is no way to chose the one I like the most because they are all so great. I really like the composition in the Bison image and the detail in the Marmot image. You have a wonderful eye for photography my friend.

These are all excellent, and I appreciate your showing the EXIF data for most.

I see you got the bison (my favorite shot) with the "kit" lens at 46mm. You must have been pretty close! Be careful!

Thanks Frank, Pa and Mike. I took the bison shot while I was stuck behind about 20 cars, waiting for a herd of bison to cross the road. I just told my wife to roll down the passenger side window and took the shot. :D

Those are simply fabulous! The bison one could almost be a painting, it's so perfect. I love the colors of them all, but especially the mountain goat and marmot shots...I think the presence of the flowers makes the whole photo pop in those cases. And the mountain goat and kid photo is so precious. Thanks very much for sharing those!

Vinod, these are just about as nice as your landscapes! And to think some of them are "car shots"!! :shock: They look like they were meticulously set up. Nice job!!

Great pictures.

The exposure and the DOF really make the subject pop out. I really like it.

Thanks for sharing.

Vinod.

Great pics and I am sure a fun time to go there. I like the Marmot shot and the flowers add a nice splash of color to the pic.

I am planning a trip to Yellowstone for hopefully next year.

I did not know if it was rude to ask here too. But since, I know you have been there maybe you can give me some pointers. Where to stay, best places for wildlife scenery, best time of year etc.... What lenses did you use the most?

Thanks.

Vinod,

Very good pictures. I like the Bison too. The Mountain Goats are good. I have gone hunting Mountain Goats several times and all I end up with is long distance herd shot.

BTW, the picture you titled Mule Deer and Fawn, actually looks more like a Cow Elk and Calf.

Anyway, great job!

Thank you all very much for taking the time to comment. :)
I wish I could have spent more time there, if you ever visit that area, make sure you have your camera ready to shoot at any time. I missed a couple of interesting shots because my camera bag was in my trunk and I couldn't get down from the car. :roll:

Hi Mark,
Believe it or not, I was in Yellowstone for half a day, I drove around the south loop where most of the interesting geysers are. You will see bison all over, especially in the area between Norris and Mammoth(going north). If you get a chance try driving on the Beartooth Highway, part of the highway is closed because of landslides earlier in the year, but you can still drive a 30 mile stretch which is beautiful.
You can also try this for some good tips on Yellowstone, I found the one they had for Glacier pretty useful.

Sorry if I wasn't too much help :oops:

Hi Ray,
Thanks. You are probably right about the cow elk...I relied on my 7 year old son for the identification, he had a cheat sheet they handed out at the Park, but they were drawings, so I couldn't tell clearly. I guess Mule Deer have slightly longer ears?
