Hi Attila,

These are just lovely. LOL, it took only 15minutes for them to load on my iPad here in the park.

Yes. Chanthee and I have been here for about a week and a half. It has been great. Internet connections have been spotty at best.

Once I would like to go to Yellowstone N.P. but I would like to go a less popular area, some backcountry hiking and photographing if it is not illegal yet, or gonna be until I get a chanse to go.
I just saw last week a slideshow and presentation about a Yellowstone, and the photographer said, there are boardwalk goes everywhere and you must walk on it you can't step on a ground, because that can cause a fine for you.
If this is a true, I'm not interesting about the Yellowstone at all! I come from an ex communist country so I'm not use to this high level of controll and restriction and prohibition, and regulation. I use to the personal freedom.

Hi Attila,

That is certainly true around the geyser basins. This is for your own safety. Many people have died or been injured in the geyser area by falling into scalding water. People forget that Yellowstone is essentially a giant volcano - which explains why things like Old Faithful and the other hot pools.

Having said that, the park is pretty well marked out after all of these years. There are mNy places to go unencumbered, and i suggest that the best way to see Yellowstone (or any park) is exactly as you suggest - off of the beaten path.

Hi Attila,

Very nicely presented and shot! I'm trying to figure #1 out, did you shoot from or through a blind?

Where I came from we say: "Who stupid, deserve to die"
Fortunatelly the goverment not punish the people with that, take away their freedom just becouse a few idiot who died or injured.
Why need to punish everyone, just becouse a few idiots?

Every year hundreds of people die by guns here in america! Why not take away guns? Shooting each other is OK? But if someone die by accident becouse it's own stupidy immedietally they take steps, to take away freedom from everyone. It is make no sense!

Thanks Dave!

I did shoot it from a portable photoblind standing in a water, but the unsharp things what you see on a picture is a reeds between me and the Egret!

It was taken a shallow (3feet deep) marsh where I was photographing swans originally. The egret came by surprise! There's a little narrow islet in the mars, with reeds on it.
The egret was wading on the other side of the islet, and there was only one short spot where wasnt reeds on this islet. I have to wait until the egret gets into that point to able to take a photo.
Because the islet and the reeds was about halfway between me and the egret I got them unsharp enough and it make a natural frame to my subject.


Here is my photoblind what I can use in water:



This is a golf size umbrella with a camo net and skirt on it, attached to my Wimberley head, with Manfrotto "single arms". It is turning with the head and camera, but not tilting with it. So I can turn around a 360 degree but the photoblind is turning too with me. But when I have to tilt up or down, it is stay stationary. So the camera can be stay in balance as usually on a wimberley head.
If there's no wind, it can be very usefull. I have longer camo skirt for it if I want it to use standing behind a camera, or a short skirt if I want sitting on a ground or when I use it in water.
