Yellowstone in Spring 2021 Trip Report - Tom Bol Photo Workshops

The Lamar Valley in Spring is an irresistible destination for wildlife photography. The bison herds gather to drop their young and these "red dogs" put on quite a show, running, leaping and napping for all to see.

This year both workshops were treated to multiple wolf sighting and an impressive photo opportunity on a bison kill at the Madison River.

Traffic jams take on a whole new meaning in Yellowstone. Several times on each workshop, we rolled down the windows and watched the traffic stream by.....

The lingering snow fields of Hayden Valley and the Harlequin ducks at Le Hardy provided a change of scenery and species on our last day.
