Happy 4th! This osprey has quite the view. Nest site perched over the mighty Yellowstone River year after year, and well accustomed to people, dogs, and all their festive shenanigans Shot for Smithsonian's "Epic Yellowstone" series. #fireworks #whatshappening? #boom @grizzlycreekfilms

Back stateside after a long stint abroad on back-to-back productions. Happy and fulfilled to spend time in beautiful places, but even more giddy to get some Montana summer time now with the family. #phonesnap #rh1 #sunset #lifeofawildlifecameraman #traveling #professionalbaggagemover #earthonlocation

I feel fortunate to have spent so much time filming, observing and learning from this bobcat.

Coyote in Badlands. On my first trip to the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands in South Dakota to film prairie dogs and black footed ferrets I ran across this sly yote cruising the edge of a large prairie dog complex. The Badlands region and surrounding prairie is such a diverse and dynamic ecosystem. I was fortunate enough to return years later and film an entire wildlife program here for @smithsonian_channel @mikebirkhead. #badlands @badlandsnps #southdakota #wildlifecameraman #coyote #songdog #grasslands #makosica

Icons. Two symbols of pure Americana side by side in a single frame - a bison stands next to Old Faithful geyser during its post-eruption steam phase in Yellowstone National Park, soaking up the warmth on a frigid winter morning. #natgeo100contest

Hayden Valley morning steam floating around from the many thermal vents in the valley is always a sight to behold. The landscape is painted in new tones and structures every morning, and sometimes you can't see 10ft in front of you but that is all part of the wonder of Yellowstone in winter. #yellowstone #haydenvalley #winter #filmmakimg #myoffice #betterthansummer #bbc #earthcapture

River otter family, circa 2012 on the Yellowstone River. I've had a lot fun filming these characters over the years for many different productions. They always manage to make me smile. #otter #riverotter #yellowstone #wildlifecameraman #ynp #3stooges

I should probably insta more often in 2019, but I'm not off to great start. However, for some reason these bears came to mind today, perhaps because I'm off to film in some frigid temps this week again and these guys are resting cozy somewhere high in the Sierra. I filmed a fun little sequence of them for a BBC series a few years back. Acorn woodpeckers create these amazing caches or "granaries" in trees and many a bear coming to lower elevations to escape the California fires found them quite fun to raid high up the canopy! And they grabbed some fresh green acorns while they were at it of course. Swipe through to see the series. #BBC #naturalhistory #wildlifecameraman #badatinstagram #california #blackbears #treeclimbers #oak #acorn #woodpecker #instanature #bearsofinstagram

Just returned from 6 weeks filming on the Tibetan Plateau. It was high (16000 ft). It was remote. It was remarkable. And I felt very at home in that landscape. The wolves, pika, marmots, bears, ravens and huge skies made it all feel like my Montana backyard. #lonewolf #tibet #tibetanplateau #wildplaces #china #wildlifecameraman #iphone6s
