Welcome to Ray's Yellowstone!

Here you'll see Yellowstone wildlife the same way that I've been lucky enough to see it. Living within 110 miles of the West Entrance to the Park, I visit every chance I get, especially in the Spring and Fall.

Most of the pictures on this site are actually frame captures of videos I've taken in Yellowstone National Park with my Canon GL-1 digital camcorder . I recently started taking picutres with my new Canon 10D and plan to begin posting picutres from that camera also. On the VIDEO PAGE, you'll find short streaming videos (some downloadable) of Yellowstone wildlife that I've filmed.
Please email me on the CONTACT ME page with any comments you may have about my site, enjoy and thanks for visiting!

Please note that my number one priority when filming wildlife is "DO NOT DISTURB" their natural habitat! I encourage all who view, photograph, or film/video wildlife to follow the same rule. I use optical telephoto lenses up to 40X zoom with up to 200X digital zoom. ALL PICTURES ON THIS SITE WERE TAKEN WITHIN 50 FEET OF A MAJOR ROAD IN THE PARK. As you can see on the following pages, you CAN view great wildlife in Yellowstone without going far off the roads or trails and disturbing nature. A good rule-of-thumb to follow is: if you cause wildlife behavior to change, you're too close.
