19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Spirit Chase

A wild stallion chases a mare at sunset; their silhouettes show strong spirits. A stud will connect with several mares in the herd, forming a smaller family group known as a band. Gestation takes 11 months and then a foal is born, able to walk on its first day.
