Newly born American Bison calves are called “Reds” or Little Reds” after they are born in the spring and compared to the darker adults they appear very red. When I took the portrait above in May the calves were just a few weeks old. I had low light the day I took this, hence the high ISO.
I took this portrait last week which was about two months later than the first portrait and the calves aren’t as red any more and they certainly aren’t as little. It doesn’t take long for the bison calves to lose the reddish tones to their fur.
Life is good.
