14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fighting Bulls

On a hike above the Bow River in Banff National Park I discoverd two huge elks who came out of the forest. They decided to fight each other in the middle of the river in front of the Rocky Mountains. This was an incredible experience and for me a once-in-a-lifetime shot!
