Bison bull marches head on in black and white

A fitting image for Tatanka Tuesday. When you see this big guy coming, there is little doubt who has the right of way. 😉

Poor weather with heavily overcast skies and light rain limited the photo opportunities on my after work drive last Friday. Thankfully two, massive, Bison bulls gave me some great pics as they marched right toward my truck.

There is something about these animals that to me compel a conversion to black and white. In my mind, it helps to convey the Old West that they are most often associated with plus it just makes them look really cool. What do think?

Native Americans call the bison Tatanka, a Lakota word that translated means “bull buffalo.” In May 2016 the Bison became the official mammal of the United States, a fitting and long overdue honor.

If you’re interested, this image is available for sale here.
