First Day in Yellowstone - It's a photographer's delight!

WOW what a an amazing first day at my wildlife photography workshop! And it's only half over with! We go out again for another shot at wildlife at dusk! But I would say, 4 grizzly bears, one black bear, two moose, lots of elk, deer, bison, birds, and a ton of other wildlife I can't even name is an AWESOME first day!

This momma grizzly bear and her cub were an amazing sight - as you can tell by the photos, we were all quite close to them - and eventually the pair crossed the road. I shot most of these with only an 18-200mm lens!

What an amazing week this will be! Now to learn some from some of the mistakes I made today and to learn how to handle this crazy 600mm Nikkor lens I rented! Could you imagine being even closer to these grizzlies?

The workshop is being led by Dale Franz of Franz Photo - and after only a half a day I would recommend him for ANYONE looking for a great wildlife photography workshop!
