Pierce Brosnan posing for a photo at Mammoth Terraces has resurfaced after the actor was hit with a court date for allegedly wandering into a protected area at Yellowstone National Park.
The James Band star, 70 – who is claimed to have walked into ‘delicate’ and dangerous Mammoth Terraces hot spring tiers – could be seen striking a pose in an image uploaded to the Instagram page called @touronsofyellowstone.’
While the post does not tag or reference Pierce, the actor could be seen wearing a near-identical ensemble in snaps that he had shared to his own Instagram account on November 1 as he visited Montana.
The caption of the post shared in November read: ‘Touron [tourist/Mormon] on the Mammoth Terraces in Yellowstone.’
The Irish-born star stood on a layer of snow as he flashed a small smile towards the camera while making a peace sign with his hand.
A description of the springs was also added in the lengthy caption, explaining hot water ‘forms a series of terraces composed of travertine deposited by hydrothermal springs that have flowed into the valley near the north end’ of Yellowstone Park.
‘The unique colors of the spring water reflect diverse minerals in the travertine, including an iron oxide, which lends the terraces their yellowish-brown color.’
The water in the springs can reach temperatures of 125 degrees Fahrenheit and ‘dissolved limestone and other minerals crystallize out, forming the travertine deposits…’
In one picture, Brosnan could be seen sitting in a chair with a scenic landscape and mountains in the distance behind him.
He also included another photo as he removed his hat to pause for a selfie as the sun shone down on him.
‘A new hat from Aspen Hatter, Austin Texas …making memories in Montana,’ the Mamma Mia! star penned to his 2.1 million followers.
The resurfaced photo comes shortly after Pierce was slapped with a court date in Wyoming for allegedly wandering into ‘delicate’ and dangerous protected hot springs at Yellowstone National Park.
The Tomorrow Never Dies actor is accused of venturing off the permitted path and attempting to get a closer look at thermals in the Mammoth Terraces section.
He has been cited twice over the alleged violations on November 1, and is scheduled to appear in court on January 23.
The star has been charged with Foot Travel in a Thermal Area and Closure Violation, according to court documents filed on Tuesday.
He is due to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephanie Hambrick next month.
The Mammoth Terraces are a popular feature in Yellowstone, constantly changing in color and activity.
Federal rules stipulate visitors to national parks must stay on the designated walkways. Venturing off the boardwalk is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
Brosnan is just the latest tourist to try to bend the rules at the stunning park. At least 22 people have died from burns sustained in Yellowstone’s springs and geysers.
In 2021, a Connecticut woman was jailed for seven days, fined $2,000 and banned from Yellowstone for two years for leaving the walkway and approaching the thermals.
In June, shocking video emerged of a couple ignoring warnings at they attempted to touch 175-degree geysers elsewhere in the park.
A woman was seen screaming in pain as she plunged her hand into the hot springs.
The clip was shared on TouronsofYellowstone’s Instagram page, which also regularly documents abuses and poor behavior in the park.
Most recently, a tourist was seen destroying delicate moose vegetation by driving off-road in a car.
DailyMail.com has contacted Brosnan’s reps and Yellowstone Park Rangers for comment.
