Default Bison

A little over a month ago, I posted pictures of Bison that were brought in to help with a prairie restoration project. http://forums.steves-digicams.com/wi...704-bison.html We went back this morning and several of the herd were close to the road. They jumped up when I first approached, but then relaxed, but kept an eye on me. Was afraid they'd take off to the far end of the 150 acre prairie. That was their reaction when they got off the truck last month. Of course, there were several hundred people lining the fence then. They are awsome looking beasts. It's hard to realize that at one time there were more bison than people, before most were killed off and the prairie's plowed under for farming.



Pentax Kx, Sigma 150-500 mm

Those guys have an uncanny way of watching what's going on around them. If you are close enough you can tell that the eye is following you.

Very nice photo.
