Buffalo at Fermi

At the beginning of August, I headed down to the Naperville area to visit my daughter at basketball camp.  On the way down, I stopped at Fermi Lab and went to go see the buffalo herd there.  I remember going to see them when I was a kid and I thought they were so cool at the time.

It was a beautiful day – sunny and not humid.  When I first arrived, the buffalo were in their pen area and I thought I was out of luck.  But once I got out of the car and moved closer to the fence, the buffalo came out, almost as if to say – hey, we have a visitor.  If you look at the picture above, you can see this one keeping an eye on me.

It was fun to see the young ones following their mothers and the bulls just sauntering around.  I watched for a little while and then headed out to see my daughter.
