This unforgettable tour explores Yellowstone National Park during the peak of Autumn when it undergoes an extraordinary transition. As the park changes from summer to winter, its colors begin to undergo a drastic shift from greens to vibrant yellows and reds. The parks wildlife is also very active during this time. There is no finer place to capture the annual rut of the Elk then in Yellowstone. The large Bulls will be stamping their dominance over their rivals while trying to keep together their harem of females. We will be out early to try to capture this behavior in the misty valleys on these cold autumnal mornings. The fall season also introduces the rutting season for Yellowstone's largest mammal, the American Bison. We will spend time with the large herds, analyzing their behavior in the hopes of predicting and photographing a full on battle for dominance. The park's carnivores are also very active at this time, especially Grizzly Bears as they try to fatten up for their long winter hibernation. We will venture to a few special spots that are especially productive for bear photography in hopes of capturing these reticent and majestic animals. We will also be on the lookout for other species (Pronghorn, Red Fox, Bighorn Sheep and some of the different Owl species) and the amazing landscape photography opportunities which this unique season in Yellowstone has to offer.    
Our prime subjects on this tour will be Yellowstone's big three, Elk, Bison and Grizzly Bear. That said, because we are a small group, we can have a much more flexible itinerary that is tailored to the participants personal interests and wishes.
