LONE BULL by Sandy Stewart

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

On an early mid summer morning a lone Bull Bison ( Buffalo) stands along the misty bank of the Yellowstone River. He isn’t actually alone, as a female Cowbird sits on his back. Cow birds are beneficial to Buffalo as they consume many pesky insects that bother the Buffalo.
The American bison is the largest land animal in North America. Bulls can stand 1.82 meters (six feet )from hoof to shoulder and weigh between 453.6 -907.2 kilograms (1000-2000 pounds). Cows are around five feet tall and weigh between 362.9-453.6 kilograms (800-1000 pounds).

Lens EF 100-400 IS USM Lens.
Tripod; Manfrotto, including joystick head.
Taken at 1/250’s at f/8, 400 mm, iso 800.

    Nice darkroom work Sandy

  • Thank you so much Dennis! I didn’t quite capture the scene exactly the way it fully appeared in real life, so I had to do a little editing to get it to the way I remember it. lol : )
