When I photographed this bison bull grazing on a crisp January morning I recall how cold my hands and cheeks were and that I could hear the crunching sounds the bull made as he ate.
My favorite times of the year to photograph the bison on the island are in the spring when the grasses are green and lush, when their red calves arrive, when they are in rut and during the winter when the ground is covered in snow.
I haven’t photographed the American Bison on Antelope Island State Park in a long time and I am not quite sure why. I haven’t spent much time on the island since the fire this summer that scorched half of the island but I realize that I should do something to fix my lack of recent images of bison.
Life is good.
