I'm publishing two galleries of images from my January Yellowstone adventure, which was the best winter trip I've ever taken to the park. The first gallery is comprised of all the non-wolf shots, including a few landscapes mixed in with all the animal content.

You can see the full gallery of 167 here. A short preview is below.

As usual, ravens and bison were the most consistent subjects in winter.

I had my best otter encounter in a couple years (over an hour).

Winter is the only time of year I enjoy visiting Norris Geyser Basin. The thermophilic algae there really pops at this time of year. This shot was captured using a bit of purposeful panning blur with the camera.

We had some nice wildlife moments in the interior during my tour with all three canid species.

We saw 6-7 foxes one day from the snow coach, but this was the only one that got close.

As mentioned in my black and white article, I enjoyed working on abstracts on this trip.

One of the trip highlights definitely had to be our double weasel encounter. This one caught four voles in an hour!

Wonderful images! We love Yellowstone, and have spent a week there in the fall for the last 4 years now. What an amazing place, always fascinating!

Great photos. I love the shots of the eagle and raven wing prints in the snow. That had to have been quite an unusual find. I saw my first ravens at Lake Yellowstone when I was about ten years old. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
