12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

As my wife and I were leaving Yellowstone we noticed a huge backup of traffic. It turned out that there was an elk eating his dinner off to the side of the road, about 200-300 yards away. So I pulled off safely to the side of the road, grabbed my camera and swapped out the lens for my telephoto. Then I got some photos of the elk.
