14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

I was on a road trip down California 101 when I spotted a large herd of elk. I had never seen an elk before and was taken aback by how large they are! This one was extremely territorial and was in the process of walking towards my car when I took the photo.
