Bison

with 22 comments

Bison 1234

Bison have recently been reintroduced at Caprock Canyons State Park, where they’re allowed to range over a good-sized area. On April 15th I photographed this bison, which eyed me warily but eventually wandered off. Flyers and signs warn visitors to keep at least 50 ft. away from these wild animals because they can weigh 2000 pounds and reach speeds of 30 miles per hour, so although the picture makes it look like I was pretty close, I prudently kept my distance and used a telephoto lens.
