POTD: What Everybody’s Wearing

This is standard winter headgear, or should I say facegear for bison in Yellowstone Park this time of year.  A lot of animals mainly use their hooves to paw through the snow to find grass, but bison seem to prefer using their head. Not only does it clear a bigger swath of snow at one time than a hoof does, it keeps their mouth right down there next to the ground where the grass is. A pretty efficient operation.

I took this photo about a year ago. I liked it then and I like it now, sometimes it just takes a while for an image to work its way through the POTD queue. (For whatever reason, it’s not a linear progression, i.e., first in doesn’t always mean first out.)

This is actually a composite of a photo of a raven that I took recently superimposed on another one of a graffiti-covered light in a walkway underpass in downtown Denver that I took last spring.

If you’ve followed my photographs for very long, you may have noticed that subtle images aren’t generally my thing–high contrast is more my thing. But once in a while something subtle does grab my eye and the results are very pleasing to me. This is definitely one of those times.

“Just do it” would have been a good title choice for this one, but I was afraid of getting sued for trademark infringement.

The “Shelter From the Storm” title doesn’t fit this image nearly as well as it did the previous image of the same title from January 9th (here). I just called it that because it is the same raven as before. Personally, while this one has merit, I like the earlier image better.
