New Life on the Prarie

New Life on the Prarie

On my last trip to South Dakota, we arrived just at the beginning of calving season. We took a side road where we saw some bison along a river. On the way back to the main road I spotted a new born, I mean possibly a few moments old attempting to get up off the ground. It was snowing, cold and the mother was urging her newborn "red dog" to get up. As she walked away, the calf stumbled on wobbly legs and took it's first steps. Still wet from being born, the baby followed mom across the road and up a hill where this image was taken.
