13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Aware and wary

A lone, injured buffalo with its guards up. It was away from the herd and injured, making it an easy target. You could see its aggressiveness from its posture. The buffalo when it saw us was trying to stare us down, as if telling us to keep away or else.
