A Mother's Day Parade

Hi Friends.  A little info on the images: The Buffalo Mothers are very protective and keep their calves close to them for weeks, which makes getting close to the moms and calves a bit difficult. We also do not like to apply any kind of pressure during calving season, so respectfully keep our distance. Over the past month, I've been able to get a little closer with each outing. Lastly, choosing photos of Buffalo Calves is a little like choosing photos of your grandchildren - it's hard to delete any! I hope you enjoy these photos of the prairie's newest arrivals, along with their sweet moms! jill

When I'm out photographing, the yearlings (pictured above) that hover close to the "maternity ward" become curious of me and often run toward me to investigate. The yearlings will nurse until the new calf is born and then the mother usually kicks the yearling off if it tries to continue to nurse. The mom's teach their new calves to graze after a few days, as illustrated in the photo below.

  • They are so very beautiful!! I love the photos you took and the information about how the yearlings nurse until the Mom has to kick them off for the new borns. How wonderful nature is and the work you are
    doing to keep the buffalo and the ecology balanced. A great Mother’s Day gift for all of us human mothers to appreciate. Bless you and a Happy Mother’s Day to you and all your happy customers who can enjoy your products. Bonnie (May 7, 2022)

  • Wonderful photos Jill.
    I especially like the very young one being taught to graze as it has to move its leg way out because the little neck is still short! Amazing creatures.
    Thank you all for all you do.

  • Lots of red babies. The real green movement.

  • Excellent mothers day photos, thank you

  • As I looked at the beautiful photos you took of the Buffalo moms & babies. It is hard to look at those cute babies & know the babies grow up to look like mom.
    I want to wish each & every mom, both human & animal, a very Happy Mother’s Day. Many more of them for all as well.
