21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Little calf

I took this photo in Vava'u, Tonga. A very small calf was relaxing by his mother's side. My mother wasn't moving most of the time, so when I looked into her face, I saw that her eyes were closed and she seemed to be sleeping.
