I always believe there is something about bison that almost begs to go with black and white (or sepia in this case). When I think about them, I can’t help but think back to the Old West when as many as 60 million of them roamed freely across much of North America.
By the late 1800s we had decimated the population leaving only several hundred. It was folly on man’s part but, thankfully, we realized the error of our ways and the bison is now a conservation success story.
In May 2016 the Bison became the official mammal of the United States, a fitting and long overdue honor.
