“This bull elk was photographed in central Colorado. Although it may look as if he was taking in the gorgeous, warmly lit scenery, he’s actually tending to a herd of females that are outside the photo to the right. Many people have joked that I must be sitting on his back. I’m actually farther than it appears. Far enough for it to still be well-composed. I’d rather have composed it a little differently, but if an elk such as this steps into the perfect background, I take what is presented to me.” – Blair Wacha

“What is there not to love about this little guy casually hanging out at the Grand Canyon completely unaware of the awe inspiring surroundings and enjoying his meal. The image boasts sharpness and great contrast between the subject with his surroundings. ” – Rumaisa
“Different layers of green and blue in the grass and sky filling up the surface area of the photo with its vastness against the deer show how such a simple image can be overwhelmingly beautiful just by its simplicity.” – Rumaisa
