In May I drove over to Yellowstone for my annual spring visit, but not without stopping at a couple of refuges in eastern Idaho that produced some nice photo ops for me last year. Though the owl action wasn't nearly as good this year, I still had some nice photo opportunities with various species.

A preview of some of the encounters is below. You can see the full complement of photos from this trip in the ongoing PNW 2017 gallery on my site.
