A kiss for good faith. Mule deer migrating north for green grass and to give birth, the cycle of life. A screen grab from current work on the Yellowstone Migrations. Fun to see these wonderful and beautiful and complex animals again. #journey #deer #yellowstonemigrations.

June warmth in the mountains means heavy runoff and pulsing rivers. And for some, like this cow elk fording the Snake River, this brings bigger challenges. River crossings are one of many obstacles that migrating ungulates encounter on their journey to their summer birthing grounds. From my perspective, this is the cycle of wild. #yellowstonemigrations.

Loud and strong for the wild planet on this earth day! The sage steppe community in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem - mule deer, pumas, and sage grouse call it home and know each other well. Turn up the volume for these wild ones, and let their voices be heard. 🎤#beyondyellowstone @natgeo.

juvie bald eagle takes a look at my camera while standing on a pronghorn that died during its migration, i’m guessing of hypothermia, it got caught between a log and a rock in a fish habitat structure. And the cycle of life continues. #yellowstonemigrations @insidenatgeo #beyondyellowstone.

Seems like all of us are on the move, just like every living thing on this planet. Like this young black bear, in search of food or maybe something else that I have never heard of or imagined. But I know what a fresh blanket of snow feels like. #yellowstonemigrations #beyondyellowstone.

@rickridgeway walking the path of the pronghorn migration in Wyoming back in ‘08. He just joined Insta so give him a follow if you want a taste of the real deal old school. #yellowstonemigrations.

Like a heartbeat, pronghorn pulse in and out of protected areas during their migration to find the resources they need. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and all the wild things. @natgeo #yellowstonemigrations #beyondyellowstone.

#YellowstoneMigrations book, a few of my favs here. The pronghorn fence photo, a fleeting moment that is engrained in my brain forever. And the photo of a 3week old elk calf following its mother up the mountain on its first migration, a photo I worked on for 2 years. Both photos highlight wild animals on the move, and the kind of work that I love to make. @natgeo @braidedriver.

Proud to share with this community the release of my first book Yellowstone Migrations. It chronicles my 10yr journey with the migrations of animals in the greater Yellowstone, specifically the pronghorn, mule deer, elk, and the predators that depend on them. This has been a field project that I could never have fully imagined, a dream adventure into the wild heart of America.
