“I always tell everyone, you have to get up early. If you want good photos, watch the sun come up in Yellowstone. I like to take pictures of flowers more than animals so I’m always looking for that dynamic light. That happens right in that area. That whole meadow basin runs right down into the Firehole River and it runs east-west so the sun comes up over the central plateau and it’s a neat place to be early in the morning at any time of the year.
“On this one, I was especially lucky.”
Alex Wypyszinski, a retired professor and amateur photographer, shot this amazing series of photos of a grizzly bear chasing down an injured bison when he stopped to take photos of geysers in Yellowstone National Park in May. We got the story from the man behind the camera, who works at a post office in the park during the summers.
