Bison Naptime



While driving through Shelby Farms last Sunday, we noticed that the herd of bison were taking a little siesta, right next to the fence. They have a large expanse of land for the herd, and they usually are fairly far away from the perimeter. It was fun to see them up close, even though they really didn't seem quite as interested in us.

I hope that you're having a great week so far. I've been unable to visit in the last few days due to my work schedule, and my father's second operation (which was a success!). I'm anxious to catch up, hopefully tomorrow.

Great shots!

I tried to take a picture of a cow today, but he ran away!

Glad to hear your father's operation was a success!

These animals are so huge and seems so ancient to me!

I wrote a book about these animals once. In that process I learned a lot about them and also even more about our government policies and the people in power.

Your photographs of this magnificent animal are very nice to see.

They are so cute and fuzzy! I would like to give one a big hug (although that would probably be a bit dangerous).

Glad to hear your dad is doing well. Love the pics today. These are such intimidating animals. I can't imagine hunting them with bow and arrow from horseback, can you?

Great photos, Andrea!

It's good to hear your father's surgery was successful!

What brilliant photos, they look really cuddly though I bet I'd change my mind on that if I tried to cuddle one!

They look awesome!

They are huge but also so cute!

Gentle giants, and they look so docile. Congrats on your father's succesful surgery.

They are handsome creatures. We don't get to see them much anymore. And it's a shame.
