Bison roaming Iowa

Sadly, not as freely roaming as a few centuries ago. Nor in anything like the numbers; now, there's just a few left in reserves. An excellent picture of three in one such wildlife centre, in Iowa. Picture by Richard C. Hager:

...which reminds of back in May 2009, seeing these beautiful animals up close and personal myself (albeit from the safety of the back of a reserve lorry), some 500 miles south east in Indiana. One of my pictures:

Along with the bald-headed eagle, it's difficult to think of animals more symbolic with the United States of America.
