Fun Friday: My Personal WatchDog

A funny moment in Oklahoma’s Wichita Mountains … woke up one morning and looked outside my camper to find my own, personal bodyguard … a large American Bison:

American Bison outside my camper

Bison roam freely on the Wichita Mountains NWR, even in the campground! I had to carefully exit the camper and walk around my camper and to the next campsite, in order to get this image. Makes it a bit interesting to get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom break … have to be careful not to trip over one of these guys! :o)

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 1D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, with Canon 1.4x TC, shot at 140mm
