Winter conditions and winter coats: survival must be the aim of the game for these.
Bet your fingers about froze getting this shot, Ron.
Nice to have the two nearer the camera and rest of the group fading into the snowy backdrop.
And despite all that white you still needed ISO 800 to get a widish aperture!
Ronnie.

No wonder the indians used their hides for clothes and blankets. A wonderful capture of life in the middle of winter for a bison. Hope you had a warm cozy room at night while in Yellowstone. One with a hottub to warm up.......Sandy

A perfect capture of these creatures braving the elements Ron. I too like the comp' with the two in the fg and others fading out of the frame.

Great composition and imagery. I can almost feel the cold emanating out of the photo. It looks like a scene that could have taken place two hundred years ago.

Having seen these marvellous animals in their own habitat, can you imagine millions of them on the plains, must have been some sight.
