A visit to Yellowstone in the fall is simply stunning; not only is the weather amazing but the Aspen’s turning gold lends to beautiful backdrops when photographing wildlife and landscapes.

Hide and seek.
Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) cautiously sniffing around what makes for tree cover in the tundra. Polar bears have fantastic sense of smell, enabling them to detect prey such as seals from more than 1 kilometer away and 1 meter under the snow.
The scarcity of trees and plants in the arctic is primarily due to the inability of their roots to penetrate permafrost. Trees that do survive are sparse, and have leaves and branches growing only on one side—usually the side that is facing away from the fierce northern winds.

Brown pelicans were always around whenever I went out to see shore birds in Texas. Back in the 70s, they were listed as endangered in the United States when pesticides, such as DDT, in their food thinned their egg shells and the population declined dramatically. DDT was banned in 1972, and the population has been coming back since then. It's so scary to learn that things used in growing crops can cause such a detrimental effect in the long run.
A memory frozen in time.
Frozen like the ice that hung off of the trees that day.
Frozen like the creeks we crossed, and the ground we almost slipped on.
Frozen like that numbness I felt in my toes...
As frozen as that one week two winters ago; a frigid memory stuck in my mind.
Entirely frozen, utterly stopped in time while winter does what it does.
Photography is a magical kind of art that allows people to preserve time and moments, and to describe the world the way they see it.

The name Jaguar originated from the Native American word ‘Yajuar’ meaning “He who kills with one leap”. Unlike many other big cats, Jaguars are extremely good swimmers 🐆
