Hey Hay Hey. S-
Love the image.

The buffalo is beautiful (Yes I know they are legally bison but buffalo is such an excellent word. My eldest grandson has always insisted that some words simply feel good inside your mouth, and "buffalo" is one of them; "bison" is not). And he/she is in perfect placement in the frame with those flaring tree limbs echoing the curved horns, but not so much echo that it distracts, only enhances.

The light is beautiful too, whether found or enhanced does not matter.

I might tone down the brightness of the hay in the foreground, and raise the shadows in the face just a tad. I'll try it and report back!

Agree with all Minnie said, especially the brightness of the hay bed. For being in a resting state, the beast gives off a sense of power and strength. Very engaging!

Just a bit of a finer point, here.
Hay is edible fodder,(alfalfa, grass hays) harvested as livestock food.
Straw is the dried grass that remains after the grain (wheat, oats, rye, barley) has been harvested therefrom; it is used for bedding.

I always thought there was a difference, but the odd thing is that they eat it, sleep on it, and other assorted things... S-

That’s straw, the by-product of grain harvest (yellow, dry, fragmented stalks and leaves). She may be chewing on some at her repose, but when she’s after nutrition, she’ll stand up and browse on grasses...or on hay if it is offered elsewhere. There is none in sight in this image.
