Default Miracle

A few years, a buffalo was born in Wisconsin, USA.

It was a white buffalo....and it was named Miracle.

This is HUGE good medicine for the native Americans.

The buffalo is no longer white but is still huge medicine
for the native Americans.

The two photos below are some of their offerings to the white buffalo.





The owner did not want photos taken of the buffalo but I bought some and scanned them and you can view them at:

Digicam,

The photos of the white buffalo are interesting even if you didn't take them.

Did you deliberate;y crop-off the feathers that are hanging from the dream-weaver hoop? I think they might have made the shot more interesting.

It sounds like you got alot out of your time at this place. Why were you not allowed to take pictures of the buffalo?

I like the fence photo. It moves well.

Hi Selvin___

Perhaps I did crop them out at the bottom...it was not my intention.
I will check the original shot.

I did laboriously use clone tool to remove second, lower wire from photo.

Hi Soundengineer___

Thanks much for your response

The reasons the owner of the buffalo quoted to me for no photos were:

1. He did not want to stress Miracle with lots of folks pointing lenses at Miracle. Lenses for some reason are interpreted to
be a threat by a buffalo according to owner.
2. He was making a lil money off copies of his photos which helped offset cost of Miracle's food, etc.
3. The native Americans told him that taking lots of photos of Miracle would diminish her soul....

By the way, Miracle is now almost ten years old is a momma of
three with one more calf soon to arrive .

According to owner, shortly after her birth, thousands of folks came to see her, including native Americans from all over
America

Yes, Soundengineer, it was very peaceful there,
