Stare Down - Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Rocky Mounatin National Park, Colorado

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I am in Wyoming shooting with a great group of photographers on Jeff Clow's Spring Photo Tour in Grand Teton National Park. This is the earliest that Jeff has ever had a tour there, and he did so for the express reason that the animals in the park will be emerging from their winter hibernation and hopefully will do so with their babies. While I am not normally a wildlife shooter, I certainly couldn't pass up the opportunity to see this in person and hopefully get some decent photos. Perhaps I will even get a shot like this one that I took in Rocky Mountain National Park last October. It was late in the day, light was failing and I spotted this magnificent animal seemingly daring me to photograph him. It felt like a stare down for a few minutes before he decided I wasn't worth it. I hope that I am lucky enough to get a few shots like this one, especially if they have their young with them.
