Default A Few from Wyoming

Got to spend 10 days with some clients/friends at their home in Jackson, Wyoming from Sept 7-18. Was just getting used to 30 degree mornings and 60 degree high temperatures when I had to come back to the reality of Dallas and 100 degree days in late September this past Sunday. Such is life, LOL.

The E-M1, 7-14, 12-40 and 40-150mm f2.8 Zuikos are what I carried in a Lowe Pro Slingshot 202 AW. This outfit is just heavy enough a shoulder bag is a bit heavy for any long distance of walking. The ergonomics of the slingshot were perfect. That 12-100mm f4 is looking might nice these days, LOL...

Mount Moran with the changing colors.



The people I stayed with live on a butte just outside Jackson. Each morning I did a 2.5 mile walk before breakfast, except for the one morning when I ran into this guy. After a couple of pics, I turned around and headed back to the house, LOL. A female was not far away and I had no business being anywhere near where I was..



Lots of wildlife to see.



some, right outside the front door in the morning...



String Lake, at the foot of the Tetons.



Spent about 3 hours one day in Geyser Basin at Yellowstone.

Hi Bob.

In one case of "I had the wrong lens on", I was shooting foliage with the 7-14 when a Bald Eagle soared overhead, so all I got was this image. By the time I was changed over to the 40-150, he was gone and never showed up again.

I have had the same luck with bald eagles this whole past year. Two times I was busy docking my boat when overhead the eagle would appear, by the time I got the lines secured and grabbed the camera it was long gone. Couple other times it buzzed over my head and back behind the trees before I could even get the lens cap off.
