Calf Bison framed by Mother
Photographer: Brent Paull
Location: Yellowstone National Park
The rising sun sets this calf bison off with highlighted fur, as it is framed by its mother only a few feet away. Calf bison are commonly called "red dogs" and the color and texture of the calf's fur stand in contrast to its mother's darker,heavier coat.
Digital Alterations: 
Cropped to vertical. Brightened the image some in Levels to bring out more fur detail of the calf so it looked the way I saw it when I photographed them. Sharpened.
Camera Information: Nikon D70 body, 500 f4 lens, ISO 100, 1/160 second at f4.5, tripod.
