but I don't. so in honor of my lack of writing, I leave you with this picture from Yellowstone. This little guy didn't make it thorough the winter. I thought it was a very cool shot. It's almost like he's lookin at cha.
Hi Guys. Rich said he didn't know what this is so I'll tell ya. It's a buffalo calf carcass. When we reached the Mud Volcano area on our first full day in Yellowstone, we happened to get there just as a Ranger was starting a guided tour. It was very cool and infomative, I wish we had indulged in more of them. So anyway, our last tour stop was off trail. Yes, we left the boardwalk and went off into the trees calling "Hey Bear!" all the way to scare off any well, bears! The Ranger warned us that there was a carcass ahead. I expected something gross and smelly, what we actually saw was this little guy. There was something morbidly beautiful about the sight of these bones laying in a field of green grass. Life and death all summed up in one still life photo op. Sadly, as always, what I see and what the camera catches are two different things. My view of this was so much more vivid. I would have liked to have gotten clser, but you have to be careful where you walk out there because you never know where you might discover a new mud pot or fall through the earth's crust into a geothermic feature. Zooming in just didn't have the same effect. But this is definately one of my favorite shots from the trip. Maybe I should only subject you to favorite shots.
