Yellowstone NP Part II
After locating the grizzly the first day, began scouting the park for wolf activity and potential kill locations. It wasn't until today that we found a decent location as you can see from above. Sat on the elk kill all day and the wolves arrived around 5:15 PM. I will be back on this kill site at 5:30 AM to hopefully capture the remainder of the Canyon Pack feeding on the carcass.
Did locate several other wolves but this series turned out the best. Still haven't had any time to work up images, staying on the go in the park from before sunrise to after sunset. I had to double stack (something I rarely do) to achieve the close proximity image viewing, for both the grizzly and the wolves. So, I shoot with a 400mm/2,8 and put a 1.4x and a 2x extenders to keep safe distances and not disturb the wildlife. Blue Skies
