Elk | Yellowstone NP

The details tell his story:  the ice hanging from his belly suggests he's been sheltered in the Lamar River for quite a while.  The bloody bites on his shoulder and hind quarter hint at a close call.  And his gaze was not at me, a mere photographer, but at a pack of wolves bedded down a few hundred yards behind me in the hills.
