A sign of spring

Bison cow and calf

One of the signs of spring is when the bison calves start appearing in Wind Cave National Park. Tuesday evening I found one of the new arrivals — part of a herd of about 20 cows. A few of them watched me closely as I took photos with my telephoto lens. I assume they are all very protective of the vulnerable little creatures.

And as a bonus, the sunset tonight was better than average.
