[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a male Plains Bison from Elk Island National Park. It was rainy and over cast day. The green spots on his head is actually cockell-burs. He was standing on a small hill, and I was about 100 feet away from him with a running chevy with an open door behind me just in case.

great portrait, TFS Ori

A nice in-your-face photo! You are fortunate, we are not alowed to get out of our cars in our parks where there are dangerous animals.
Can you sharpen it up a bit?

Hello Denis,
this is a special capture for me. Never look so near as your shot here.
What a huge creature. Our buffaloes are much smaller and not this tough.
what a view for me.
Thanks for sharing.


Bonjour Denis,
La profondeur de champ ne me semble pas excellente mais le sujt est tout de même bien valorisé dans une belle attitude.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

What a beautiful animal. We only see them on TV. Well captured by a brave man.Maybe add another round sharpenning to it?

Hello Denis,

I can alone see this fantastic animal in the Zoo, when you can take this image in a great park is the nature a lot better.
Nice portrait of these Bison.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Nice shot with good low pov.
