Yellowstone 3 - The Wildlife  
Yellowstone was done in two phases. The first phase was all about the touristy things like must-see places and stopping to look at bison herds, elk and such. The second phase would begin after a trip south to the Grand Tetons. Wildlife sighting during the first phase was very exciting and interesting - the first views of the great bison herds set against a fiery backdrop and the giant elk in all their grace next to the roads. And since it was pretty much my first time seeing wild herds, every opportunity to make photographs was welcomed. It was a rainy couple of days in Yellowstone though and photographs were mostly of the here-is-proof-i-saw-wildlife kind. Anyway, here are some of the common creatures seen in Yellowstone during the first phase.

Wow , Yellowstone looks like an amazing place , if only it weren't on another continent ... I wish I could visit it , but for now I have your photographs to be amazed by !
I just woke up and looking at them was certainly a good start of the day !
I love the colors on the last one , my other favourites are the photos of the bison calf , the marmot and the elk .
Have a nice day !

Thanks. I wish Yellowstone was closer to California as well but I'm so glad I made that trip. It is a beautiful place. :)
