Elk calf
Photographer: Maureen Santina
Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
As we were riding along the Madison River, there were several adult elk standing in the water grazing on the reeds along the water's edge. My eye caught a flash of brown among the russet and green tones of the brush. I looked down and saw this elk calf hiding amidst the brush nestled against a snow bank.
