Bison

bison mom and childFriends, Custer State Park in South Dakota is a mecca for bison lovers, and my husband is at home among the big ones.  This post is for him, enjoy JIm. The first is an image of mother and child, the child is nuzzling his mother and we human interpret that as affection, but really i think he was trying to brush off the flies, or trying to get her to rise to her feet, so he could have some milk.
