Today I’m featuring some closeup images of the American Bison of the Badlands NP:
It was quite cold in the Badlands, as evidenced by the leftover snow from a storm that came through the area 4 days earlier. Making it seem even colder was the winds that funneled through the area. Case in point is this next bison … you can see how the wind is blowing his beard out to the side:
It’s always great to be with these behemoths on the prairie!
