During the afternoon of photographing bison next to our campground, the bison began to move around a little more. A decent size group of people had gathered to view the wild beasts, which is always a concerning thing. There’s always that worry that one person will make a wrong move and end up causing the bison to charge.
I kept my distance the whole time.
Similar to the last post, I can’t really get behind this photograph. I can’t say it enough: I’m not a wildlife photographer. This photograph’s composition is okay, and has subtle action, but it’s not interesting to me. They’re just eating. I don’t get a narrative out of it. It’s just okay.
Regardless, I do still enjoy this photograph for what it is. Having the opportunity to photograph such beautiful animals is something I don’t get to do often. Central Illinois may have eagles and deer and all that, but you see them so minimally that it’s not really worth it for me to go out and seek that. Maybe if I did that more often, I would identify more with wildlife photography.
