Area: Bialowieza Forest

European Bison is the emblem of the Bialowieza Forest. In winter it is relatively easy to find bison herds which concentrate near numerous feeding places which we will visit during the trip. They can even be found in corn fields and in villages where they look for food. Bison are not very shy animals and quite often it is possible to take decent shots directly from a car or just placing the tripod near a car. It is much easier to approach them in the open area where they can see you and feel safe rather than in the forest where they usually run away before you even press the button. In the forest it is much easier to get close to solitary bulls than to herds consisting of cows and calves.
In spring, summer and autumn we will search for them in meadows where they come early morning to graze.
During the trip we can also see other forest animals: red deer, roe deer, wild-boar (quite often) and much more rarely: elk, red fox or even wolf. This will also be a good opportunity to take landscape images.
