13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Caribou Paparazzi

This is in Denali National Park in Alaska. The young caribou stands in the middle of the road while visitors snap shots. I loved all the wildlife in Denali but the people were almost more fascinating. Tourists often only see through their lens and forget to just experience their surroundings. I feel like this Caribou is saying "Really, another photo?"
