Buffalo Portrait

I went out to visit these bad boys today, and they're just as wary of me this winter as they were last winter. I think it's really funny the way they seem to post a few sentries, while the rest all "subtly" make haste away from me. The "softness" in front of the sentries are their steamy breathe in the cold.

They must associate you with the cold weather. ;)

Oh how fun, love that!

Wow! Are they just wandering around or are they fenced in on a farm? I have always thought buffalo were really dangerous but they actually look peaceful here.
I am still amazed that you have buffalo (apart from the zoo)

I cannot even get over that those are REAL. They are so big and beautiful. What a wonderful capture.

It is so cool to see those guys again, I remember them from last year! Too funny about them posting a few guards while the rest run away, they are so much bigger than we are (plus there is a HERD of them) that it cracks me up that they are afraid. ;)

Yay, I love the buffaloes! I'm sorry they're not like my friendly cows who come up to the fence when I stop by, but I love this composition. Maybe if you keep going back they'll get used to you.
