17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This bull elk was walking along the side of a hill, navigating around rocks, trees, and fallen logs. I kept following him with my camera. He came upon this overturned tree and the likeness of the upturned roots to his antlers was striking.
