Baby Bison Resting

By | March 28, 2020

I photographed this Baby Bison while at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma back in April 2012. I went to this refuge to camp last week but didn’t see many Bison. I didn’t stay long at this refuge because they closed Doris Campground where I camped. This campground closed because of precautions being taken to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

How I got The Shot – Baby Bison

I parked on the side of the road. I had my Canon EOS 7D camera with a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS lens attached resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
