American Bison

Bison bison


The most amazing beast I've ever seen. HUGE. They were beginning to shed their winter coat, so they all looked very bedraggled.


Open areas of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.


Picture #1, the profile, was "that" close. I could have reached out my window and touched him. We did look in each other's eyes for a moment. Those eyes seemed so sad, yet ancient. Just plodding down the road. And you can just jolly well wait for him to decide to move. Or not move. Picture #2 I call "A bird and his bison". Just a lone bison, down by the river, grazing. , with a bird riding along on his back, snatching bugs as they went along. Probably pulled a tick or two from the back as well?
