Bison in Dust Bath

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

I’ve posted a shot of this group in the past. We hung out watching them for maybe a half hour so I have lots. My favorites are where they’re interacting as they are here. I think those two on the right are kind of going at it.

  • nice b&w conversion.. they do seem like they’re butting heads.. nice shot! :)

  • i remember the other image too. one of my favorites of yours. this one is great too. i like the spines and back lines of the bison and how they work with the horizon line.

  • Fascinating to watch the dust fill up the air as these guys go about their life with strength, perhaps with passion or perhaps this is their way of being “delicate” ;)
