American Bison - Wyoming
EOS 1D Mk II, 70-200mm @ 145mm, ISO 320, f/5.6, 1/1000s

I'm seeing lots of great winter Bison pictures from Yellowstone lately so I went and took a look at my Yellowstone Bison folder.  Here is one from June 10 many years ago.  A couple hours from when this was taken, the roads in the park were closed due top 6" of snow in just two hours in June :o

Extraordinary image EJ. As a lad, i can recall doing a cross country run in April in the snow in England which is probably the same rarity factor for June in Yellowstone...N...ice

Great composition and wonderful view of this bison in the iconic Yellowstone landscape.  We are no stranger to crazy weather here in the UK, but not that I can recall 6" of snow in June!  :)

This makes for a very pretty scene- I really like the composition with so much beautiful landscape included. Six inches of snow in June? That's about when the snow is finally melting in Vermont! LOL. Not really, but it often feels that way.
