In the spring of 2009 and in the spring of 2010 I spent a lot of time observing baby animals in Yellowstone. They are all cute. But I grew especially fond of bison calves or, as they are also known, “red dogs.” They’re very photogenic. Find a bison herd in the spring or summer and stop and observe for a while. The interactions among the cows, yearlings and calves is very interesting. Plus, it doesn’t take long before one of the calves decides to run around for the sheer joy of it.
