Where the Buffalo Roam
Posted By: Jimbo, 10-16-2009, 08:45 AM

Met up with Daacon [Davey] in Edmonton yesterday and we went to a place called Elk Island. Neverf seen a Elk but we did see some Buffalo. Dave was using his Bigma and these were taken with my Sigma 70-200. Hopefully Dave will post some of his. JIM

Windows down only! Come on what do you think Dave and I are, Animals~ As Dave mentioned, we had to get one of the car and track these beasts for at least 100 feet in four inshes of snow while typing a email. Our biggest concerns was making sure we used Marc's 7.1 F stop, at all times, while maintaining a close eye on the car. You know there could be wolves around wanting to get at our pizza! We lived in fear for most of the day! God, we were lucky to get out alive. JIM

You know with all my bantering, I forgot to mention that I like the shots from your day out.

You say the snow will be gone by the weekend? I thought that Dave lived just South of the North Pole up by the igloos and Santa. where the snow never leaves

He does but Global warming has changed all that. Oops. I mean, Dave lives in one great Igloo. Thanks for the whale meat bud. Your wife is one hell of a cook! PS: THANK YOU JOHN

Nice shots guys! Jim, my favorite of yours is your first in your post. Dave - your second shot is my favorite of the series. I'm jealous - one thing California is sorely lacking is large wildlife that comes out during the day (deer excepted).
