I was driving towards Old Faithful, when I saw the perfect scene. This bull elk was grazing near a creek so I could see his reflection in the water. With the early morning light, it was gorgeous.

So you're probably asking why I'm telling you this on this photo. Well, by the time I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and framed him up, he had moved away from the water. I walked up and down the road trying to recreate that shot and even sat under a tree for an hour waiting for him to work his way back, but he never did. So this is the shot I ended up with. I like it, but it is nothing compared to the image I will have forever ingrained in my memory.
