Green Sweat Bee (1/4 inch), on the one of our last blooming New England Asters.

Fall colors of the Deer Creek Valley between Wykoff and Spring Valley.  This spot look great, but most of the fall color has not reached peak here yet.

We have been photographing the same group of turtles in the same spot for years.

Great Egret, Mississippi backwaters.

YELLOWSTONE: A LAND OF GEYSERS, WATERFALLS, WILDLIFE, AND SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAINS

GEYSERS OF YELLOWSTONE

GRAND GEYSER.  This is indeed a GRAND geyser.  The trees in the background give you an idea how large this geysers really is.   This geyser is located on a boardwalk about 1/2 mile beyond Old Faithful geyser, and yet less than 1% of the people who see Old Faithful take the time to see this truly spectacular sight. It has become a fairly predictable geyser(most one would have to wait is 2 hours.)
Years ago it was quite unpredictable and we once waited over 7 hours to see it erupt-and yes it was worth the wait.  To see video of this geyser go the Gary Erickson on facebook.

Daisy Geyser.    On cool days you see more steam than water when a geyser erupts.  Hot summer days are actually the best for geyser viewing.
