This was taken on our first morning at Grand Teton. We got up early, and were in place before dawn, hoping for the best. The sun made a very brief and partial appearance, during which time I took this shot. Aside from this minute or so of sun, the rest of the morning was completely cloudy and dark. We saw quite a few things (moose, coyote, beaver, white pelicans, bald eagle, elk, wigeon, osprey, etc.), but the quality of the light made getting acceptable images quite challenging.
