My Favorite Images / Bison

 

This large Bison was resting in this dirt pit in the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park. Bison of both sexes wallow (roll on the ground from side to side) to remove parasites from the fur, especially in areas like Lamar & Hayden Valley. In places where there are no existing dirt pits, bison will paw at the ground to create one.
