Yellowstone Bison for B&W Tuesday

As it’s a rather monochrome day here in the Sunshine State of Florida, with lots of rain falling from moody grey skies, I decided that a “B&W Tuesday’ pic is very fitting.

Our memorable visit to Yellowstone National Park in 2010, gave me my first sighting of American Bison.

These wild and woolly animals standing up to six feet tall, and weighing as much as 2,000 lbs,Β  have populated the Yellowstone area since prehistoric times. If you are interested to read more facts about these amazing animals, just click here.

  1. This is a great B&W, Sylvia. it gives the impression that it could have been taken anytime in the last few hundred years (not that they had cameras back then, but we can always imagine) πŸ˜‰

  2. Such amazing creatures and so sad that they were nearly hunted to the point of extinction by the first white settlers. Hate to get political here, but can you imagine how saddened, if not furious the Red Indians were, who’d lived alongside nature in a sustainable and responsible way for hundreds of years, to see the whole natural balance of things upset in such a short space of time?

    I’m so glad that the few remaining bison have a protected home.

  3. Very fitting, indeed. Because I couldn’t go to the Botanical Garden today, I looked at my photos from the past two weeks. They gave me my inspiration for today’s post. πŸ™‚

  4. Believe it or not, Maymont Park in Richmond, Virginia houses several bison. And there’s a farm out in Dinwiddie County, Va., that has one or two, probably for meat later. It’s sad to think of how many bison have been literally murdered for whatever reason over the years.

  5. I have seen some of these magnificent creatures in the real. Pictures just don’t do them justice.
    OH…don’t mean your picture. lol It is wonderful. The same statement could be said about any animal, plant etc. You don’t know what you have missed until you see it for real. πŸ™‚
    But then there are some things around your place that are better not experienced. 😦
    I read about huge snakes that were once pets and abandoned. Have you seen those?
