Tell Us A Bit About Your Image:
The image of this Bull Elk was taken at the Wildlife Conservation Center south of Anchorage, Alaska. The Conservation Center is a refuge for large mammals that have been rescued for some reason and can't be released back into the wild. The enclosures are natural and very large, and it is quite easy to photograph there.
