Keeper of the Red Dog

Animal: American Bison
Location: Yellowstone National Park, United States of America



Gaze into a photograph that depicts one of Yellowstone National Park's most iconic animals, Bison. These hefty animals can weigh up to 2,000 pounds as they stand on their skinny legs.  Bison face some of the most extreme conditions known to man living in temperatures that drop to -40°F as they really on their large fat reserves and fur to keep them warm.  As springtime approaches, Bison cover the unthawed valleys in red as their calfs are born.     

In the backcountry of Yellowstone national park I hiked side by side with a Bison herd capturing tender moments between cows and their calfs. Bison cows prize their baby and will do anything to protect them from the predators attempting to get a meal.  Everywhere Bison calfs go they stick close to their mother's side for protection.

As I was walking through the thick sage with a heard of Bison I managed to walk ahead of them in the direction they were going.  I placed my tripod on the ground as I sat in the sage waiting for a cow with its calf to walk over the ridge having the beauty of Yellowstone's vegetation surround the landscape with sage cover the floor and a forest backdrop.  As the Bison approached, one pair walked out onto the top of a small ridge allowing to me capture the protection and love an adult Bison has for its red dog. This moment shows why Mother Nature is truly the greatest artist of us all.

Each photo captured has a deep and intricate backstory, articulated above, that is printed alongside your print to give you the full behind the scenes look for each fine art photograph you purchase.
