In November of 1990 my wife & myself were in Yellowstone on a Honda V65 Magna and wound up in the middle of a Bison herd. They were like cattle meandering their path home & were were at their crossing point. We could have just reached out & touched them. They just ignored us thankfully. I was very impressed how large their eyes were. They made me feel very humble. Very impressive at arms length away.

We have a wildlife refuge in Oklahoma where Elk, Texas Longhorns and Bison roam freely. I waited a long time for this shot. I was hiding in a group of boulders while the herd gathered and then settled down. I shot this with a 200mm zoom lens set at around 100mm, as I remember..............so I wasn't really all that far away. Sometimes it's more exciting to photograph than kill...........................though I'll admit I'd love to lower a bead on one of these big fellows with my .45-70! Click on the image to see it as I was from my hiding spot.
Oh, by the way, I was shaking in my boots, literally!!!!!
