As we entered the park we were told “WATCH OUT FOR THE BEARS”!! and then given all sorts of brochures telling us to watch out for the wildlife, do NOT get close to the animals…in the Visitor Center were video’s running of people getting hurt by the wildlife.
So we were pretty open to ‘seeing’ wildlife.
It must have been the wrong time of the year
We saw very little…..
But what we saw were traffic stoppers! If we came upon cars stopped every which way (including tour bus—of which there were MANY), even in the middle of the road we knew some type of animal was up ahead.
A cool family of Buffalo
A very thin deer (in Green River)
Another elk (the following two photos and the deer above were taken by Wayne Maxwell)
Taken in the evening on the second day
Lots of crows
A cool little butterfly
Several bear at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana

Then I saw the Three Bears
And I KNOW this is stupid, but I got to take a photo of a magpie!
Those birds are extremely hard to photograph. I happen to think they are beautiful birds.
We don’t have them in our area anymore…the ravens and the crows have pushed them out. They maybe living in other parts of Delta and Montrose County, but I, personally, haven’t seen any for a very long time.
Then, although we know we were NOT suppose to stand or get close to the wildlife…Terry just HAD to go stand by a Moose! These animals are huge!
Tee-hee-hee! HAHAHA! Laugh, snicker, chuckle!
