Friday photo

Bison in Midway Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park. March 2005

I like this shot for the loneliness and bleakness of the scene. It looks harsh, although you can easily tell that the snow isn't at all deep - as is typical of the geyser basins, where the same source that heats the water keeps the ground too warm to sustain deep snow for very long.

Bleak? I thought he looked like he was on a casual stroll down to the local bodega for a sixer.

Look closer - it is a unicorn buffalo. It is supposed to be mystical. ;)
