Boy, I wonder what his parents think about the look? 😀
Taken last Friday afternoon in some pretty harsh mid-afternoon light. I still had some decent luck overall as the main herd moved right by me, including two of the calves that are only a couple of months old.
It used to be we called these buffalo but that actually was incorrect. While they are part of the same family that includes the European and African buffalo, the Bison is its own, distinct species. It is believed they were called buffalo by early North American explorers due to their resemblance to the Old World species.
