"Elk Mist."

A bull elk feeds peacefully in a misty meadow on a brisk, fall morning. (Note cards available here.) Behind the lens. Most professional photographers only look for the biggest horns or antlers, ignoring everything else. I tend to see animals in terms of ecology and behavior, and my images tend to reflect this different view. So my bull elk image is as much a peaceful landscape as it is a wildlife photograph. As the first light of day creeps across the meadow, lighting up the steam from a creek, this elk just moves along slowly and chews contentedly.
