Bison Babies

cuteness.jpg.jpgOn the way home from our conference, we stopped near the Madison River to watch newborn bison calves romp around. One calf even still had its umbilical cord. Although I love bison and think them beautiful animals, the word "cute" never came to mind in their presence--until now. Bison calves are pretty darn cute. A flock of Canadian geese lingered nearby and we also observed a bald eagle perched on a lodgepole pine near the river. For the next month or so, Yellowstone will be cuteness central as the resident animals give birth in spring. I am looking forward to seeing my first wolf pups soon!
