A few more images of the Grand Tetons. These were taken as we were leaving the Tetons and headed back to Yellowstone National Park. As you can see from this image there was a rain storm moving in. Click on the image to make it larger and more detailed.
The clouds were pretty but mixed in with the haze and the pending rain storm it made for a difficult photography experience. Still it’s hard to take a bad picture when these wonderful mountains are in front of the lens.
On the way back to West Yellowstone I caught a glimpse of this (I believe it is a) large hawk. I pulled over and got the long lens ready. I wasn’t expecting to see in flying wildlife. At first I thought it might be a juvenile eagle, but the more I looked at it I decided it was a hawk. As you can see he is missing one talon. He seems to be doing alright and didn’t have any trouble maintaining his balance.
That’s it for today. My next post will be back in Yellowstone park with some wonderful scenery and of course some more bison.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
