really pretty shots! i agree, the fence doesn't look that strong.

must be bison theme day for fences! you're the 3rd one linking in so far today! :)

Sylvia K said...

Great shots of the bison -- and a weak fence!!! I'd be a tad nervous walking by there too close to the fence!! Hope you're getting ready for a lovely weekend, Karen!!

Couldn't tell you if they are strong enough to hold in bison, but all the fences in your first image must be doing the job adequately. :-)

Love the bison and the fences - they must be happy where they are. :) Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day!

Margaret Adamson said...

HI great shot with the Bison and although the fence is flimsy perhaps they are quite content staying behind it.

Sandra said...

poor beautiful bison used to run free.. love the pics and it is odd that a small fence keeps them in, but it does the same for cows and horse.

Willow said...

Love the Bison.
That flimsy fence must be doing a good job !

Muffie said...

Gorgeous beast! I love the look of those old wooden fences, but I wouldn't stay around this one for too long!

Stephanie said...

Wonderful shots!

Bob Bushell said...

Gerald (SK14) said...

ladyfi said...

Amazing bison shots.

RedPat said...

They could probably leave there if they wanted to! ;-)

Debbie said...

i love those pops of yellow!!

Nancy J said...

Love those Bison, saw some at Brian King too, maybe those big fellows are not inclined to leap at all. Cheers, Jean.

Elephant's Child said...

Wow. Hopefully the bison are perfectly happy on their side of the fence.

Judy said...

Beautiful bison shots and I do think it might be a tad flimsy for my taste :)

Pamela Gordon said...

What great pictures of the bison. I do wonder about the fence too.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I'd say they appear to be enjoying themselves without a care in the world. Sign me up!

Karen S. said...

It looks like a wonderful day in the land of bison!

eileeninmd said...

Neat shots of the Bison, I hope the fence held up. Have a happy weekend!

Gail Dixon said...

Very cool bison shots!! The fence does seem rather flimsy for these behemoths! lol But I love the old wood on the post.

Judith Mercado said...

Great photos visually, but they are also remarkable for having captured the trajectory of North American history in the last few centuries.

Rambling Woods said...

They are amazing animals

Michelle said...

An interesting fence choice for these beasts!

Brian King said...

Glad to see I wasn't the only one with bison! Nice shots! Handsome creatures.

Very nice fence and love seeing the buffalo.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I really, really LIKE this post. Bison, huh? Are they near by? The last time I saw them on the hoof was years ago in Yellowstone.

beep said...

If you could name 1 of the bison what would name it? love u!

Gramma said...

Beep - I would name one Bill. Love you too!

don said...

A fine shot of these important fences that keep the buffalo in where they belong.

DeniseinVA said...

Great photo of the bison Karen. They are magnificent animals.

Ruth Kelly said...

I am sure that they could push that fence over without even trying.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I would imagine if they wanted out, they could just walk right through that one!

Les... said...

cool shots, they sure have put a lot of faith in that little fence hey? *LOL*

Carletta said...

That's my kind of fence though. :)
Nice looking bison.

Icy BC said...

Beautiful shots, Karen!

Looks mighty nice for me to see since we have rain, and strong wind for two days now.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The bison must be quite well fed, because I think they could run right through that fence should they wish to. Beautiful place.

nookworm said...

You are brave, and the bison are BIG! Nice to see happy beasts.

Beth @ "E. Lizard Breath Speaks" said...

i saw your Buffalo & i had to jump on down here & see what was going on. i love Buffalo they really are neat animals. i guess they will get just like cows (same old same old) if you lived around them constantly. but for me they are so unique. ( :

Me said...

Sure is a beautiful area. These bison shots bring back great memories.

oh great shots of the Bison's. Educated by Tex girl. I have not any idea what you call them only Buffalo to me.

Oh your photography is clear and so macro view in and it is interesting.Where I live not any of them.
