Where The Buffalo Roam

Where The Buffalo Roam
The names American Buffalo and American Bison are used interchangeably to describe the species Bison/Bison. These animals used to number in the millions until the mid-1800s when they were almost hunted (primarily for their hides) to extinction. At one time there were only about 550 animals remaining. Conservation efforts have now restored their numbers to over one-half million.

These huge animals can weigh from 318 to 1,000 kg (701 to 2,205 lb), body length ranges from 2 to 3.5 m (6.6 to 11.5 ft) long, the tail adding 30 to 91 cm (12 to 36 in), shoulder height can range from 152 to 186 cm (60 to 73 in). Despite their size they can jump 6 feet (1.8 m) vertically, and run up to 35-40 mph / 56-64 km/h.

Photographed in southwestern South Dakota, USA. Nikon FG, Nikon 70-200mm lens.

The filigree detail in the background creates very effective tension with the animals.
