This bison decided to wallow right after I stopped to take photos on Wed. in Custer Park.
I took this photo in Custer Park on May 2nd, the day friend Jayne and I witnessed a large herd of buffalo (bison) running in a long line, calves included...no idea why they were running but it was awesome to see. This buff stopped for a dust bath when the run became a walk.
To clarify..the proper name of this animal is bison. They were labeled "buffalo" when the early settlers first saw them, as they resembled water buffalo. As you can see, I use both terms. I'm torn between the proper name and the more common name.
