On that cool morning on Antelope Island I came across the group of female bisons with their babies. They were basking in the sun and dozing. From time to time one of babies got up, dusted himself off and looked around.
Sometimes one of mothers was giving herself the dirt bath rolling around in the dirt.
There is not much water available for bisons on Antelope Island to bath, so they figured out that rolling in the dirt can do the same as bathing in the water.
Bathing in the dirt helps bisons to chase flies off and also helps them to leave a protective layer that makes more difficult for flies to bite them.
If mama took her dirt bath it's time for me to do the same.
This female bison with her two babies had a difficult time to stay awake no matter how hard she tried.
Generally, life is good!
