Buffalo Head

Photograph by Wes Eisenhauer

I was traveling through South Dakota and decided to visit Custer State Park during their annual buffalo roundup, writes Wes Eisenhauer, who submitted this photo to the Traveler Photo Contest, happening now. As I approached the area where the buffalo are kept and counted, most of the herd scattered at my presence. This buffalo stayed and had a few more sips of water while I snapped a few pictures ... We both stood quietly for just a moment before she turned and walked away.
