Bison Blues

I have titled this photo "Bison Blues", not only for the blue and white steam rising up from the hydrothermal basin at Yellowstone Park, but also because of the difficult history the Bison has had to walk through. 150 years ago there were an est. 40 million Bison alive. But by 1883 hunters had wiped out the population leaving only a few hundred. Fortunately, conservationists were able to save a few hundred in captivity and all 500,000 that are alive today are descendants of those few survivors.
