Cold Stare: Bison in Yellowstone National Park
« on: December 25, 2022, 02:41:05 »
In January and February, I went back to some of the national parks in the West to see winter there. At Yellowstone, I stopped one very frosty morning along the road out to the Roosevelt Corrals. A herd of bison was snuffling through the snow some distance away. I got out of the van and walked up a slope for a better view. One bison saw me and slowly made its way straight for me. I wasn't sure if I had somehow offended it, but as the distance closed, I retreated to the van and drove on. A horizontal of this image is the cover of my calendar this year. Nikkor AF-P 70-300 f4.5-5.6E, Nikon D5500. ISO 400, 1/640th, f8.

Great capture, reflection in the eyes and the cold breath!
Good decision to retreat to the the van (from one who once had a sprint of several kilometers with an angry muskox at his heels with nowhere to retreat to...).
