p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Ain't life grand!


Our trip to Yellowstone today, April 23, was magical! Dozens of bluebirds spotted in a single tree, hawks doing mating dances in the air, and a newborn buffalo!
The buffalo calf was literally born minutes before our arrival, so please excuse the dangly bits! We met other folks who witnessed the entire birthing process ~ apparently the birth took only 7 minutes or so.
All shot with T2i plus 400 f5.6. I'm trying to do more with PP, so your comments and critiques are most welcome in this regard. I'm still not happy with the washed out look of the dried grass in the buffalo pics, although to be truthful, that's pretty much how the terrain actually looks this time of year. I will revisit the PP on these as I improve my skills.
Cheers!

It was very touching to view the interaction between mother and calf - they were very engaged with each other. The calf was struggling with balance and its first steps, and was eager to nurse. The mother was very attentive in its cleaning the calf, and very protective, keeping close to the calf and not letting it stray.
