Bison browsing in the afternoon by 

National Bison Range near Moise, Montana, USA. This was a really hot afternoon, about 2 pm and the temp was 97 degrees. I couldn’t believe the bison were out grazing in the sun…but they were. They were also in the water of Mission Creek. I will post a photo or two of them in the creek, too.

    This is such a awesome capture! I like to imagine the thousands of buffalo rumbling across the prairies and what that must have looked and sounded like. ~ Sam

  • No kidding. This herd as grunting, pawing, sniffing – a noisy bunch. Made me nervous even in my car.
