19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bull Elk and His Harem

There were 100's photographing the same images. I like photographing something more unusual. Thus, I slowed my shutter speed and focussed on the bull who is surrounded by his moving cows, that are captured like ghosts. It becomes a swirl of activity, which happens during the rut season.
