[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Everyone knows the sad story of buffaloes (or bisons) who counted perhaps 60 millions animals before european colonization and were hunted near extinction. Today, species is no longer endangered thanks to private breedings (used for meat), but animals living in the wild are only a few thousands. The most important herd in the wild is in Yellowstone National Park, which is the only place where the species was never locally extincted. The population is estimated about 3700.
Here is a powerful and beautiful specimen came to visit us during our picnic.

Bonsoir Philippe,
Il ne peut y avoir plus grand contraste qu'entre ce magnifique bison et ces petites et fines fleurs des champs. Cela fait le charme de cette image. Quant à la netteté, elle aurait pu être encore améliorée. Mais j'aime bien les images qui nous incitent à rêver..
Bonne soirée

Hello Philippe,
Yes what a beautiful speciment indeed! Nice composition with clarity, detail and color. Good low POV and placing in the frame. Good work my friend.
Best regards,

Hi Philippe
exciting view of this robust buffalo. Could see it from the post you captured. The meadows too give a lovely background.
Very lovely nature view.
