Back in April 2012, I had the pleasure of visiting the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, where I captured a beautiful photograph of a Baby Bison. This wildlife refuge is known for its incredible diversity of animals, but unfortunately, on my recent camping trip, I didn’t come across many Bison. Due to COVID-19 precautions, the Doris Campground where I was camping, closed, so I couldn’t explore the refuge.

Nevertheless, I cherish the memories of that previous trip, especially the moment when I photographed this Baby Bison resting. To capture this shot, I parked my vehicle on the side of the road, and with my trusty Canon EOS 7D camera and a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS lens, I set up my equipment on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.

I’m always amazed by the beauty and majesty of wildlife, and this Baby Bison was no exception. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, I hope to return to the refuge soon and capture even more beautiful moments with the Bison and other animals.
