You can read a full trip report here:
http://blog.shumwayphotography.com/2012/04/yellowstone-march-30-april-1-2012.html
Inside of the blog post are links to images (as I write about them).
Again the reason I quit copying it here is that it was hurting my blogs SEO...sorry

If you want to skip straight to the gallery full of images you can do that here:
http://www.shumwayphotography.com/gallery/22314935_Jzxfcn
Make the jump to go through the online gallery, I ask that you leave comments/criticism or at least give your favorites a thumbs up... THANKS!

If you have questions, ask... I published the camera information with each image and have added full keywords to share just about anything you would want to know about the images.

Happy shooting

Now it is time for the teasers:

Great photographs as always Dave!!
I love the yawning fox and the grouse.
Were the grouse "drumming" or is breeding over?

Thanks
No breeding yet...the sage and sharps are going now, but I think the ruffed and dusky blue are in a month.

Obviously, the grizz is a nice shot. A very nice shot. The thing about the wolf shot is that i think of wolves as really skiddish...that they don't like being around people at all, so I think the wolf shot is special. A classic howlling wolf (couldn't resist) shot. I think the wolf shot is probably your prize from the trip. As always, nice stuff.

Let us know how you like the 5DIII.

Just got word that Wolf 471F was killed by another pack the other day...I guess you never know when you will take your last photo of something.
