Elk calf
Photographer: Maureen Santina
Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Story: 
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.
