Here is a big buffalo (I know - bison - but I like the more colorful name) bull at the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge in SW Oklahoma.

Good composition.
Though I would spend a little time getting rid of the telegraph wire to make it really feel like the wilds of the west.

Thanks for the heads up about the wire. I had missed that. Fixed now. It's not cropped and was shot with a 70-300 at 190mm on a 50D so probably 20 - 30 ft or so. Usually I try to catch these along the road or in a parking area so I can stay safer in the car which is probably what I did here. I have stalked them but keep about 50 ft or so away and watch their body language carefully. Their not usually aggressive (actually pretty peaceful most of the time) but they will definitely let you know if you are too close.
