An American Bison head on in the snowAn American Bison head on in the snow – Nikon D810, f6.3, 1/2000, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, FX mode, natural light

Yesterday morning started out gray and cloudy on Antelope Island and I photographed a few Bison bulls grazing and charging each other. At first I was a focused on the fighting bison but standing calmly in the middle of the bison butting heads was this bull giving me a head on stare that drew my attention. I have envisioned getting this shot in the snow on a sunnier day for some time now but I like this one too.

Life is good.
