The Lewis’s Flax are blooming on Antelope Island right now and to my delight there was a large herd of American Bison and their calves resting and grazing among the wildflowers yesterday morning. These rusty red bison calves were born last month and they are growing rapidly.
I have hoped for some time that I would be able to photograph at least one species of the mammals that inhabit Antelope Island State Park among the blooming Lewis’s Flax and yesterday my hopes were realized. The flax don’t bloom for very long so there is a limited window of opportunity.
Not many people would call adult bison “cute” but I think the calves are!
