[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yellowstone's Gibbon Valley is a great location for spotting wildlife, especially this early in the season. I've been a fan of bison but I think this is the first time I has seen their calves. They're just so CUTE! [Gender check!]

PP: Cropped, sharpened, resized, and framed (and then downsized again).

RP: I was looking at Evelynn's shot of the buffalo calf, and it reminded me of thsi shot. When I looked back I was disappointed by the shot, and wanted to see if I could fix it. Here it is with a tighter crop...

Hello Mike

They shure are cute these bison. The POV is good and it is sharp and detailed all the way,very nice. The crop and the framing is also nice. I like that you captured the bird too. I think it might be a bit bright, but thats just me. Any way i did a small WS, what do you think?



Hello Mike,
This crop works fine with me, and I think your composition is good!
Pleasant situation captured with the little calf, I don't know the age of this one but it cannot be much...
Good details and I notice the accompanying bird!
Maybe the exposure is a bit bright?
