A story full of bull
Lens: DA* 60-250 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Elk Island , Alberta, Canada

click on image twice for larger view


So I am driving by and notice this dude thinking he's all that and more .........



He notices me and then challenges me to a throw down - game on !



Like Pat Benatar at a concert I hit with my best shot game over ..................



He's not impressed figured it was a cheap shot and guaranteed to keep an eye on me ...

It's nice to get into a rumble with a long lens, funny narrative and great shots bud.

C'mon Dave, thats all a bit tame.
How about puting the 50mm on the K5, set up the tripod nice and close, and then put the timer on and dart in for a "locked horns" shot...........I'd do it, but dont have a bison handy.
Nice work mate.

Great shots....even the one that you delivered to the Bison personally. I would say you had him 'buffaloed'.

Nice shots. They are a massive animal up close. I wouldn't dare click on the image for a larger view!

Good shots but I'll be even more impressed when you post the video of your knockdown punch!

Great shots. A pretty well groomed bison - usually they're a bit gnarly
