It is Tatanka Tuesday!
This past weekend the bison were doing their best to get rid of the remnants of their winter coats and rolling in the dirt creating huge clouds of dust.
It was fun to watch but unfortunately this was occurring straight into the sun which made getting a decent exposure tough.
A conversion to black and white helps I think and adds a good bit of drama.
These massive animals were hunted to the brink of extinction in the 1700s and 1800s with as few as 750 reported by 1890. Through conservation, numbers have since rebounded with about 500,000 now living on public and private lands. This particular big guy was at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
