17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
That Stare

This was near the end of my 2 hour meeting with this gorgeous bull elk. As he was grazing I was slowly moving from spot to spot trying to capture as many moments as I could. But it was when stepped on bramch and made some noise that he stopped amd looked at me as if to say, "Calm down." That stare was incredible and took my breath away.
