Camera Critters #8



These are bison from the Bronx Zoo. They were way far off from me so I zoomed in to get a closer shot. I couldn't get them to turn around and look at the camera... :D

GREAT pic! This photo makes me think of my uncle in Tennessee - until recently he raised Buffalo on his farm.

Mary: One did turn around but his face is hidden, beautiful picture.

This is a very cool pic, and I believe they are making a comeback in the wild as well thanks to intense conservation efforts :)

Happy CC and have a great week ahead!

Sure you wern't in Buffalo when you took this shot?

BTW your link for the Wordzzle brought me to this blog.

I'm headed over to the other one to see if it's there.

Tammy said...

I've never seen one in person, but I think they are an amazing animal.

we have a Bison farm not far from us and we use to take the kids and we would ride out to the fields in a wagon and see the little ones.

They wanted you to admire their trim, manly backs, Mary!

We have some Canada geese here with the same 'tude!

(Just stopping by; not doing the meme, though I enjoy what others offer.)

They look like they are in their natural habitat.

Zoey said...

Impressive animals!

WillThink4Wine said...

Oh, how I wish animals would listen when I'm photographing them. I'm having a terrible time with birds lately!

Akelamalu said...

That's a great shot!

andrée said...

Massive! It looks as if two are losing their winter coats (they look scruffy like moose do in the spring!). They are magnificent beasts.

Dianne said...

don't you hate it when animals won't cooperate with the camera

the Bronx Zoo is a great place!

and your photos are wonderful!!

I’ve heard Bison can be ‘snobbish’ that way ;--) I’ve shared at Small Reflections this week as usual.
Hugs and blessings,

Bison. Different. They cooperated with the composition. Great photo.

Travis said...

When I lived in soCal, we toured the WS Hart ranch just outside of Valencia. They have a buffalo herd. Those are amazing animals.

Travis said...

I used the word herd in my prior comment. The "herd" was only six animals.

Jamie said...

It is wonderful that they are no longer endangered.

Odat said...

I can't believe they're New Yawk bison! ;-)
Reminds me when I was in Yellowstone Park and I opened our cabin door and there stood a buffalo staring at me!
Peace

Roger said...

Great photo Mary! Hey my neighbors buffalo just had a baby calf, I cant wait to get a shot of it cute looking thing. :D

Kimmie said...

Hi Mary!
Oh this picture is wonderful! Makes me want to break out in song..."Oh Give Me A Home Where The Buffalo Roam". LOL! Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing this with us!
Hugs,
Kimmie

Really beautiful photo and nice composition too. Brings back memories of living in the West.

The only bison I ever saw were on Catalina Island off the Californian coast - nine years ago - can't believe what has happened since then.
