Congrats! It's a beautiful shot! And you worked sooooo hard for it. Did the world tilt or what, you ran uphill both ways???

You might want to cut out your part of this thread before you show it off to family and friends.

As well as she told that story, I'm betting her family has heard an embellishment or 2. . . .

I made them read it before I posted it. They laughed. I sent the whole thread with my comments to some girlfriends. It wouldn't have been me taking out the tasty tid bits of how I said I got the picture. It did take me several trips to get the photo. One time they were up very close to the road. My batteries were dead. I swore a few times then left. The buffalo are almost never toward the front of their enclosure. The ground was frozen on the day I got that photo which helped since I was standing in a ditch balancing the camera on the fence. We've had a few warm days. Standing water all over the place. It would be hard now to get a photo without sinking. Glad you liked it.
