This guy was not interested in photo taking. He demanded I go back to the Yukon and drive away. I stayed close enough to the vehicle I could have jumped on the hood before he could cover the distance between us to share the love. :wink:

Seems all the bulls I got close to the other day were surly. Guess they wanted no part in being shot by a Canon.

Great picture! He did look like he wasn't too happy with you being there and I'm glad you had sense enough to stay near your car. :lol:

Where was this picture taken?

Thanks. It was taken at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. My favorite semi local place to day hike of camp.

Randy,
Great shot.
I have done some "Domestic Bull" photography in California and you need to respect their space. That Bison looks to me like the hood might not have been enough if he hit the SUV from the side. They have tremendous strengh in their neck and a scull made of iron.
He looks like he was concerned you might try to snatch one of his females.
Thanks for the shot,
AZED

You mean like this one? He was so worked up, his eyes were almost rolled up in his head. Standing between his little harem and another bull wanting said harem.

I was raised on a ranch and worked cattle. Been going to this refuge since I was very young. Over that time I've seen what works and what doesn't work and have a healthy respect for large temperamental creatures.

Have many hours under my belt following and shooting bison from semi safe locations. Bison in their prime aren't going to endanger their role in perpetuating the species on a car. They save that for each other. :wink:

Randy,Yep! Mostly Black Angus(what a nasty temper they have) and the small Highland( pretty docile IMO).
Sounds like you know your subject. Just make sure Mr. Bull doesn't mistake you for part of the harem. :lol: :lol:
Happy shooting,
AZED
