American Bison

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
North America Bison
North America Bison
Once Buffalo Bison inhabited vast territories of North America. Herds that counted about 30-70 million species roamed the area freely and were the symbol of free spirit and strength. Native Americans hunted the species for meat, clothing material, and other uses. With the development of commercial hunting and agriculture, the Buffalo Bison experienced a huge decline in numbers. It is likely that wild free herds will never come back to North America.

Now, where around here did you find this bison? Wonderful silhouette! I like seeing the steam from it's breath!

Donna... Many thanks for the smile. I appreciate your post.

Greetings Claudia! Thank you! I photographed this bison in Canada during vacation last month. I missed the sign that demanded not to get out of your vehicle.... I guess I was lucky.

Thank you, Kathleen! And congrats again to you for your potd!

Greetings to you too, Danilo!! And many thanks for taking the time to post!

HI Charlene! Thank you!! I appreciate your time!

Hello Marcie!! I appreciate your comment immensely. Happy day!

Hi Janet! Yes, a sad story indeed. Especially when they were deliberately exterminated to control the Native AMerican population those many years ago. Thanks for commenting!

HI Cindy!! THAnk you for taking a peek at my image. Much obliged!

Hello Joy! Thanks!! I lucked out with the lighting!!

Hi Marie...thanks so much!


thanks so much, Cathy!!

Thank you, Joy!!

I appreciate very much your comment too, Sanjay!!

Many thanks Duane!

Jane...thank you for taking time to comment.

Hello Murry!! Thank you!! NOt really any dust though...the light faded quickly and quickly became chilly..that's the bison's steamy breath.

Hello to you too, Shirley!! Thanks so much!
