A wolf stalking a herd of bison in the Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park. May, 2019.

It’s a bummer I didn’t have a lens that’s long enough to get closer to the action, but it was still pretty thrilling to see this enormous wolf skulk around this herd of bison, looking for an easy prey to hunt. Ultimately, this wolf didn’t like their odds and they ended up walking away empty-handed.
