I was fortunate enough to come along just as the bison herd at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal was ambling into the public viewing area yesterday morning. Soon I found myself surrounded by dozens of them which afforded me tons of photo opportunities.
This pair stayed side-by-side the entire time and truly seemed to have an amorous attraction. They would rub against each other, take turns licking their companion. Their calm and gentle interaction made one forget just how massive and intimidating these animals really are.
An interesting side note… I didn’t notice at the time but one of the female’s horns is considerably smaller than the other. I don’t know that I have ever seen that before as they are usually quite symmetrical.
