Photograph Notes: After four days in Yellowstone Park, we found our first buffalo!!! This large male was separated by about a quarter of a mile from a small herd of 50-60 buffalo. After watching him graze contentedly for maybe fifteen minutes, he started to trudge across the river to rejoin the rest of his herd. The details on this picture really highlight the folds in the skin on his back, the splash of the water as he moved across the river, etc. We watched very, very quietly as he passed by our location maybe fifty yards distant -- definitely close enough given this bull's size and horns. Finally, I know that this is not really a water buffalo but the play on words was just too much to pass up. (August of 2005.)
