Bison and Calf in Snow

A bison calf walks alongside its mother after a recent late-May snow in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

I don’t normally like to post images of animals with their backs to me, however I think this one makes for a nice exception. Upon driving toward Kelly, Wyoming the other day in Grand Teton National Park, I came across several herds moving around the Gros Ventre Campground. That’s nothing out of the ordinary, but what was a bit out of the ordinary was the recent snow storm that came through. Bison calves are typically in scenes of green grass and wildflowers simply because that’s the only time you see them. While I’m sure I’m not the first person to capture bison calves in a fresh snow, it’s always nice if you get to be one of the few exceptions to the rules, just like this composition.
