Hi everyone,

A bit of a break in the thread but here's the last of the set from Day 10. From Mammoth a foray up the Lamar Valley to Cooke City. We had an overnight stop planned for Cooke City as there was a contact our Tour host knew which we would make use of the following day. I hope you like the following series:

1. Gentle Sculpturing



2. Hillside With Distant Weather



3. Four trees



4. Lamar Valley Monotone



5. Light; Playing



6. Distant Cottonwoods



7. Odd One Out



8. The Gang



9. Lonesome Cottonwood



10. Rangers Post



11. Cottonwood Display



The following were a 'taster' of the experience to come the next day. Suffice to say we took a lot of images on Day 11...

12. Mountain Chickadee



13. Perching



14. Downy Woodpecker



There will be a 'hop' between Day 10 and 12 as I am still to process the majority of day 11's images!

Thanks for looking and comments, as always, very welcome.

Best regards, Neil.

edit: Thanks to Hezu (comment below) for the correction around the correct naming of the Chikadee.

Actually, I think this is a mountain chickadee (Poecile gambeli) since it has that white eyebrow stripe, whereas black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) has solid black head. And I have to admit that before seaching this, I didn't know either of these New World species, but I got interested as this looks quite similar to some Eurasian tits...

Thanks, Hezu - I will have to go and check myself now! You may be correct but I definitely think you are on them being a member of the European Tit family.

Thanks and best regards, Neil.
