|A chipmunk looking out of its home. You will see many of these fun creatures when you visit Yellowstone National Park. Just make sure you protect your food from them -- we were two people and were busy protecting our dinner while cooking; chipmunks are indeed fast! They aren't the smartest either, did they try to look inside the pot while on the stove. 70-200L on Velvia. June 1996|
|A Panicking Seagull at a sandy beach in Oregon. Now, this one was really a bit trickier to get, and in this sense I express my thanks to Mr. Canon EOS. One of my all-time best and favorites, I think. While waiting for the sunset (as seen on other pics), this seagull was walking just in front of me, observing my preparations. Then, all at a sudden, a big truck showed up racing on the beach (yeah). The seagull was first curious and later became rather upset, still not flying away. I just managed to shoot this one, with the truck just barely behind it. EOS-1N, 70-200L wide open at 2.8, Fuji Velvia. August 1995|
|A threatening bison. A male bison waiting at a stop sign. Taken in the Yellowstone NP. You can barely imagine how scared some motorists were - I have rarely seen a Stop sign as obeyed as this one; Actually, nobody even tried to approach the crossing. Even a cop couldn't have done it better... 1.3 stops overexposed, as it was already rather dark. T90, 75-200, 3 sec on Elite 100. May 1994|
|Fisherman And Elk. An elk is watching a fisherman across the river. Shot in Yellowstone NP on Elite 100 with FD 75-200 at and 1/1000 sec. It was amazing how the animals in Yellowstone didn't really care about the presence of humans; apparently they knew that nobody would harm them, anyway, and one could get really close to them. Especially Bison were "tame" :-) May 1994|
|A pelican flying at sunset. The silhouette of a pelican flying in an early evening sky. 70-200L on Velvia. November 1995, scanned with CoolScan|
