I’m breaking up the Best of August post into two parts: California and Yellowstone NP. I definitely took more local wildlife photos this month than in recent prior months. It is relatively easy to take a lot of wildlife photos but not so easy to make them interesting and unique. Because of multitude of photos already online, it takes extra effort to capture something compelling. Especially when it is of a relatively common species. This is something I am trying to keep in mind while out shooting these days.
