Photo of the Week – October 27, 2016

I’m up at the Niobrara Valley Preserve.  We spent the whole day herding bison today, so obviously I’m posting several photos of some autumn leaves I photographed along a creek after we finished.

Once I get time to sort through them, I’ll probably have some bison roundup photos to post too…

    I’m anxious to see those bison photos (though the leaves are lovely). I’m headed home after an extended trip “just looking” at prairies in Missouri and Kansas, and at the Tallgrass prairie, I had the chance to ride into the pasture with the fellow whose job it is to “train” the bison to follow his lead into the pens. It was quite an experience, to say the least. What my photos will look like, I’m not sure — photographing isn’t my strong suit anyway, and doing it from the front seat of a pickup bouncing through a pasture adds some complexities — but what an experience!

    Seeing the bison, and two fall burns, brought some real context to your posts about prairie management. It’s terrificallly interesting: not to mention important.
