Buffalo in Yellowstone

Yellowstone Buffalo in the Snow

My last post talked about wanting to get back to Yellowstone. One of the dominant species is the Buffalo and Yellowstone has a lot of them. They are used to people enough that they run away from them, but every year there are stories of injuries from folks that thought they just needed to get a little closer for that perfect photo and get charged. (The photo below of the buffalo calf was taken from a boardwalk … with a telephoto lens and then cropped … I wasn’t really very close.) In the bottom photo, the buffalo clearly have the right of way on the highway. You’re lucky if they don’t just start laying down in the road and warming themselves on the pavement.
