Bison in Grand Teton NP — 28 Comments

  1. That is just amazing! I bet you could spend the entire day out there watching them! Beautiful creatures and photos!

  2. Good morning Mary! AWESOME indeed….and having a telephoto lens is definitely what you need for those wonderful nature shots you get. I am learning so much about what I need as well to get closer shots of the horses I enjoy. This summer has been a great discovery as far as what is available here, so close to me in terms of nature. But with the lens that came on my Canon, it’s hard to get close and interesting shots of the horses without getting too close for comfort- theirs and mine!

    Your bison shots are remarkably taken, and wisely approached. Since I’ve been following you, your photography continues to evolve, and that movement from great to outstanding is what I want to see happen in all the artistic endeavors I pursue. Thank you for the inspiration; I often talk to my husband about your photos and he is going to get me LIGHTBOX! Thanks to you, I learned about it and a young sales associate at Best Buy demonstrated it to us. A LOT EASIER than Photoshop!

    ENJOY and be safe, Anita

    • Thanks Anita. I always love to read your comments and the parallel you have with poetry. That’s interesting to me that you see my photography evolving. That’s a good thing.

  3. Wow, awesome shots of the bison. I love the shot with the birds on the bison’s back! And the little ones are cute. Awesome series, have a happy new week!

  4. I hate to be repetitive, but “awesome” really is the best word for these photos. I know buffalo and bison are very different, but the song “Home On The Range” just keeps playing in my head now! Magnificent creatures and magnificent photos, Mary.

  5. Oh mary, your work is a lesson to me especially now that I am taking more and more photos. Poetry is no different only that the tools used are words thst capture the light, instead of a camera.angles, perspective, light and shadow and the editing and manipulation are all devices necessary for both arts. You rock!

  6. Wow, those are fantastic. (And thanks for mentioning the proper way to photograph wild animals!) Love the one with all the birds on him! And the little one in the grass. What an amazing thing to see just down the road from home!

  7. Very beautiful! The last one is my favorite…..I think the idiots we hear about in the news just don’t see these as wild animals. For so very many people, their lives include almost no exposure to animals/nature. So seeing a herd of buffalo brings to mind nothing more than a herd of docile cows. And the selfie craze just fuels the stupidity!

  8. What an awesome animal they are, and your photos are simply wonderful. Thank you for sharing them with us! I love to hear how you respect them too….if only everyone would do that.

  9. Great shots – and respect, caution and a telephoto-lens is a good recipe for most nature photography.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

    PS: I think I may have to get a truck!

  10. What makes your post so great for me is the fascinating story you tell both with your terrific photos and with your words. What a great piece of photojournalism!
