The Lone Bull by Ken McElroy

An impressive specimen of the American Bison bull stands eyeballing the photographer. Not to be underestimated, the Bison is the source of more tourist injuries more frequently than the Grizzly Bear or Wolf. Yellowstone park is home to one of the last free roaming herds in America. (Wyoming, USA)
