[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We so enjoyed watching the buffalo babies. We watched them over the course of several evenings. One beautiful summery evening was different for some reason. The babies were all "wired". They were running full speed in circles around all the adults, who just stood there in a kind of trance. The babies just got going faster and cutting the corners tighter. It was hilarious and as usual we were the only ones there to see it. It went on and on till finally the juveniles (I guess they are yearlings) started in too. It was interesting to see how playful they were with the babies but how careful they were with them too.

This is a lovely shot Evelynn. Composition is great. Focus on the head of the mother seems a wee bit soft, but other than that this is a great shot. Well done & TFS!


Hi Evelynn.

Great subjects. The colors are rich and the POV is very nice.


Very nice Evelynn and great story too. Looks like you wouldn't want to get much closer to the mother judging from her look.

lovely shot Evelelyn,
well composed, good photo and yes this is also life, good note too, well done.
gr. jaap

Very good light on the subjects and beautiful fur textures

Hi Evelynn,
OK, I can life with another Bison shot, particular if it is this kind a beauty. I agree with Pieter on the focus of the head of mom. But I can understand the difficulties you had shooting out of the car. Did it myself several times while pushing the brake padel (no time for shifting in to park) I am really amazed how close you got. The colors in this photo are really outstanding and the details are perfect.

This is even better than your last one. They are so close together. I really like the look that mom is giving you. No doubt about her maternal instincts! Plus I like the ad for breastfeeding. "Breast is best" and here's proof from the natural world!

Dear Evelynn
I like the tight framing concentrating thus on the baby and add your work to my theme "juveniles". Thank you for sharing.

The natural couloirs are an added bonus
