My first time photographing Black bear. Nothing really special about the images, but I just had a great pleasure watching it strolling along somewhere on Grand-Loop road at Yellowstone NP. I ended up seeing more of them w/wo cubs like 7 times through out 11 days at the park. However, this was the only time that 1) I was close and safe enough 2) Bear not in the bush 3) Light is not harsh or too dim 4) Lastly and most importantly I found a parking spot :).

Today we were going to have the first camera club outing after the whole lockdown. It didn't go how most of them hoped, for one the weather was known for the last 5 days but peeps didn't bother to check it ... I even asked 2 times if peeps are sure they want to go. It was a local hill forest walk but only a handful of peeps showed up and only 3 of us were actually prepared for the bad weather ... it was piss pouring like God had a go in every pub in the UK before going to the bathroom. They, the peeps, lasted 15 minutes walking in the rain before giving up ... but I tried to make the most out of it:

I loved the fact that being up on the hill the clouds were floating around my head ... literally :p

Between every row of trees there's a layer of fog, turning the forest into a ghost.

Last picture of the day ... and all I can say is I am so happy with Oly 12-100mm f 4 Pro, it's amazingly wholesome and versatile and the image quality does not disappoint one little bit.

Amazing series
I love this type of weather and find it so appealing to photography.
You did well to persevere. And were amply rewarded.
Great viewing and reading.

That's so adorable and cute, I am amazed that you managed to spot it. I would have loved a more wide-angle picture of it to see the log more.
Thank you so much. I was pretty surprised to find him too. My dog was sniffing about a foot away from where he was hiding and I noticed him on an off chance. Here is slightly wider angle.

Well, I guess it a wild animal. But I was not too scared :)

Good Morning,

Traveling through high passes in central Nevada in +90 *F heat; Big Horn Sheep didn't seem to mind the sun...

Lots of heat shimmer as I was about 400 feet away from this mini-herd...you get what you can in the moment.

Regards,

Edd

Good Morning - Part 2,

On the road back from Ely through Eastgate (Churchill County); pretty interested bunch of wild horses. Nothing like this at all back in Woodstock!

Regards,

Edd

In my quest to find some birds - which none where to be photographed (some seen far away) - I stumbled across a puppy fox with it's mother (I presume - saw the presumably father not far away hunting earlier). Got a few shots and video before they heard me moving closer... Should have stayed put.

LOL. I'm glad "my" fox (or racoon?) did not point anything at me at least! haha.
That Vixen looks lovely :)

Thanks for linking to your setup! I've seen the exif in other threads and wondered what that setup looked like. You do amazing work with it. How much does that weigh?
Thanks!
the telescope is about little more than 2kg. Not much considering we are talking about 600mm (efl 1200mm) The gimbal (Jobu) is more heavy than I'd like to. I do walk around quite a lot with it, and I feel the pain as well. But, whatyougonnado? Like Tony Sopranos used to say ;-)
