What a welcome to the world this little guy / gal received. Soon after being born, Colorado was hit with a blast of cold weather that sent temperatures plunging to record-setting levels and a healthy shot of snow. Early in the morning this past Sunday the temperature was a bone-chilling cold 10 degrees below zero when I came across the Bison herd.
The little one seemed to be handling it well but you sure would think it was wishing it could return to the warmth of its mother’s womb! Here it is seen working through the brush, following the herd as it moves to a new grazing spot. I managed a number of nice, close-ups of it and of the adults as well.
