Photo of the Year 2020

As I was pondering my Photo of the Year for 2020, I realized I never picked one for 2019. Thanks to the miracle of backdating, I now have one posted. See below for "Yellowstone Coyote 2019." I certainly didn't have the volume of images from which to pick for 2020, in part because the pandemic cut down my travel, and in part because we completed our move from the Midwest to Montana. I ended up picking one where I wasn't even there to hit the trigger: A mountain lion on trailcam near Luther, MT. This is my second trailcam POY, the first being 2014 with the framing elk antlers. Other 2020 images of interest were the usual 4th of July fireworks in Red Lodge, MT, deer and moose in our new yard, Badlands burrowing owls and bighorns, and elk and bears in Yellowstone.
