Chipmunk On Rock

This chipmunk was scurrying among the rocks of the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park.  It stopped on a nice sunny rock long enough for me to take this photo.

On The Prowl

This black bear slowly wandered through a meadow while we watched it from a safe distance.  I wish the lighting had been better but that’s one of the challenges of wildlife photography.

Running Pronghorn

Pronghorn are said to be the second fastest animal on land.  We were lucky enough to find a small herd of them during our visit to Yellowstone National Park and this one was practically showing off for us.

Blondie

This bison sat resting on a hillside in Yellowstone National Park when we saw it.  Since most of the bison are dark brown we nicknamed this one Blondie.
