Hi everyone ,This was taken a couple of months ago debated about uploading it so decided what the hell here it goes -).
The European bison is the heaviest land animal in europe.A typical Winsent is about 2.9m long,1.8-1.9m tall and 300 to 920kg,it is shorter and less massive than the American bison and has shorter hair on the head ,neck and forequarters.The species are now endangered ,but wildlife parks and zoos have saved them from extinction and some have been reintroduced to the wild in eastern europe.

You captured the texture of the coat perfectly. I would have liked to see the eye a bit more. I really like the close-up and the horn coming straight at me.
