For hilarity, not much can beat a bison calf getting a wild hair. We watched them leap and chase and got lucky to catch this one in mid leap. Wonderful contrast to the stolid adults around them.

    Thanks for the grins, Ken. Perfect capture in mid-air, and great with the more stolid adult to the right. Looks as though it could be a vertical impromptu leap into the air.
