Lone Bison

12 x 14 inches

Lone Bison in first snow. Male Bison range as much as 20-25 miles in a day and live mostly alone on the range. I am struck by this since all the other “buffalo” I have seen were behind barbed wire.

The first snow of the fall came and Yellowstone was closing soon. Witnessing this male Bison out on the vast range alone, I could imagine the brutal winter ahead for him. Even though it is his natural habitat, I am awed by nature once again.  November, 2017.
