Do You Wanna See Some Buffalo?

I knew that I'd eventually get them. I've been driving past this buffalo farm so many times, but this is the first time I've been able to get a halfway clear view of the buffalo. Obviously there's not much room for them to roam so they don't ever really seem to be standing when I see them.

I have to say that these aren't the big prize I've been waiting for. I'm still watching for the wild buffalo that are free at Broken Kettle Grasslands. The buffalo here are more like cattle. They are being raised on this farm for reasons we don't need to think about too much.

The good thing right now is that I've finally gotten my first good buffalo pictures. So they're taken through a fence. So what? I'll still go back often hoping to find them at the front of the farm and walking around.

The times I've been here with them up and walking I couldn't get any pictures. I just couldn't see them well enough through the fence. I'm not that close when I get the pictures, so I have to rely on my zoom lens to help me with this stuff.

I'm getting ready to go out and do a bit more traveling again. Everything I've been doing for awhile has kept me kind of local and at off hours so I haven't been able to go on any good adventures, but that's about to change now. I hope to be able to see some new things and even revisit some things I've seen before.

That all means I think I'll have some good sources of pictures again. Getting pictures has been the tough part for the past month or so for me, so my posting has slowed down. That all should change now. These buffalo are only a beginning. I like it so much better when I can go out on a few good adventures here and there. I'll talk to you later.

  1. Those buffaloes sound like a tough nut to crack! I know you'll get some roaming buffalo shots eventually.

  5. It must feel great to know you'll soon be out and about again! After 7 days at home, I'm also looking forward to getting out in London again although sadly I won't be seeing nature anytime soon. Great photos.
