YA Wk1 D1-1

Welcome Back Yellowstone Adventure! That’s how I took our very first experience on a our first week back on our first venture in the park this morning. It was pretty classic wildlife photography 101.

This movie requires Flash Player 9

We were cruising the Madison and up ahead was a lone bull walking the road. Pretty darn common since walking the groom rather then plowing through the fresh snow. He was walking into the light. So we cruised passed him slowly so as to not change his path. We then went up the road about a half mile, parked, got our gear out and waited for the bull to walk up to us. A few moments later there he came and like clock work, walked right up to us, stopped for a heartbeat and then walked right on passed us. Why stop for this bull? Look at all the frozen winter on his coat. It made him a stand out and a great start to a great day!
