These very young (just a couple months old) bison are curiously watching me. I enjoy the apparent intimacy of the cousins (or half-siblings, as bison rarely have more than one calf) being so close together while their mothers are off grazing elsewhere.
This enormous bull bison was at Maxwell Wildlife Refuge outside of Canton, KS. This is before breeding season (the newborn calf is barely visible behind his left side) so the bull is getting larger and stronger in preparation for the rut.
This baby bison was running towards me through the wildflowers at Maxwell Wildlife Refuge at Canton, Kansas. The calf is about 2 months old, still with the newborn ruddy color.
