I played driver yesterday, it was a cloudy day and I knew the sunflower field was in full bloom. I could double back for photos after I dropped Far Guy off at his Physical Therapy appointment or “learn how to walk properly with a walking stick session.”
On the way into town I saw that the Buffalo (Beefalo most likely) were grazing in the field next to the sunflowers…JACKPOT. If only the herd stayed put until I got back. They were even near the approach where I could park the car.
Far Guy told me to “be careful” about five times….either he repeats himself a lot or he thinks I pay no attention to him.
I stayed near the car, the buffalo were quite curious about me…oh I wanted to get closer to that fence…but I have great respect for buffalo and not much faith in that fence…even if it is electrified. (Falling in the lake and getting trampled by a buffalo all in one week did not appeal to me.)
Low and behold there was even a baby…he was on my photo bucket list. I had photographed one at the Zoo in Winnipeg…now I have a photo in a field…maybe next in the wild…who knows.
Buffalo butts and a baby.
Jackpot! Buffalo on one side and Sunflowers on the other.
What a perfect morning taking photos. I had one thought…what if I went into the sunflower field and then took a photo…would I get sunflowers and buffalo? My second thought was “tresspassing” so I remained on the road right of way. Sensible decision.
