14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A bison grazing in the Black Hills

The photo shows an American Buffalo grazing near a creek in the Black Hills. This majestic creature that almost disappeared from our country was the main staple of most Native American tribes. I spotted the buffalo and pulled over to wait for a good shot in the natural habitat. I left the car and approached carefully to get the shot without exposing myself or spooking the animal.
