Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Lost in the Fog” by Loi Nguyen. Location: Yellowstone National Park.
“Winter is my favorite time to visit Yellowstone National Park,” says Nguyen. “On this day, the Wapiti wolf pack had taken down a bison calf near a thermal hot spring. A thick column of steam rising from the spring, together with the morning fog, gave the wolves a mystic now-you-see-me, now-you-don’t appearance. In this image, a black pup studied us intensely while hiding behind the steam and fog cloud. He must have thought to himself that if he couldn’t see us, we couldn’t see him! But a gentle breeze betrayed him, lifting the cloud just ever so lightly and revealing his beautiful head. To me, this image conveys the mystic beauty of the wolf in a winter wonderland that is Yellowstone. I hope it will generate strong public support for the fragile wildlife that lives among us in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.”
