Red Dogs

Thanks to a comment from a friend yesterday, I learned that baby bison are called red dogs.

I had never heard that term before and she said she’s only heard that in Yellowstone.

Her comment also reminded me that I hadn’t shared the couple of shots I got of the babies. It looks like it was a good calving season because we saw a lot of the little furry babies on the ground.

I love the little nubs on their heads. They are much cuter than their mothers that’s for sure!

It’s amazing what you’ll find off I-25.

A Bison ranch right off the frontage road has a large herd of Buffalo and their calves. This girl was having a blast rolling around in the dirt.

She’s glad it’s Friday.

You all are so good to me and I enjoy each and every one of your comments. Thank you for your encouragement and inspiration. You guys knock me off my feet! Have a great holiday weekend my friends.

Hugs, Leah

Quick Visit with Buffalo

Posted in Nature, Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on January 25, 2011

We love our long drives through the Sybille Creek Canyon and are always on the lookout for wildlife. Sometimes all we see is a big buck in the distance, the occasional coyote,  or crows and vultures. The Game and Fish is along the road and they are home to a few buffalo. I’ve never stopped for them before but this day I was feeling it. I jumped out of the truck into ankle deep snow and was able to capture this image with the first click.

Then the biggest guy wasn’t thrilled with me being there and he approached me with a deep growl. He started rubbing and throwing himself into the fence that was separating us. Thank goodness for that fence.

And so I moved on.
With every photo shoot, there is always a blooper. Whether they blinked or looked away suddenly.

This guy hoped to pick a winner.
