I just returned from a trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons. The baby animals were starting to emerge and causing quite a stir.


1. This baby elk was about 2 hours old. It needed a little nudge from mom to stand.


2. Nose nuzzle time


3. Moose calfs with mother


4. Walking after mom


5. Wait for me!


6. As close as I want to get to a grizzly and her cub


7. My what big claws you have!

Very nice. Which area of Yellowstone were the pictures taken from? Grand Teton NP is simply remarkable. And I need to spend two weeks at Yellowstone one of these days.

Hi Basil,

Seems you hit the timing right on the head - these are just awesome images and the Bear ones especially; as you say, you don't want to get between a Mom and her cub! I might be wrong (frequently am!) but these have a look of the Tetons about them rather than Yellowstone, but these are taken a lot earlier than we've been in the past so I probably am wrong...

I think #2 is lovely as are #'s 6 and 7 (so rare for use to see Bears when we've been over there - especially this close) and spoiled only a little bit by the location collar in #6 - but that is definitely needed to keep track of numbers and locations.

Looking forward to more from here - it's our spiritual home I think.

Best regards, Neil.

My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

The elk were in the Firehole Canyon. According the ranger, this was the first elk in the Madison area herd to be born, and only the 3rd one in the entire park that they knew about. It had been born about 2 hours before we were there. Mom was still cleaning off herself and the baby. It was pretty special to see, especially when it got up and walked around.

The Grizzlies were just outside Teton Park on hwy 26, west of Dubois, WY. They were feeding on an elk that the mother had taken down the day before. It was strange to see something as cute as that cub trying to rip apart an elk carcass.

The moose were on that same road, along the Wind River. We saw these as we were leaving for home. It was a wonderful way to wrap up our time in that magical place.
