Arriving just at dawn at Gibbon Meadows in Yellowstone, we find a wolf pack working on a fresh kill while a short distance away a bull elk in velvet grazes rather peacefully. In another shot I added a Sandhill Crane to the frame with wolves and elk. Amazing natural place this Yellowstone.
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA.

    Unparalleled peace, indeed, without the human factor. (Except photographers are okay.)

    Love how you captured the morning sun dancing on the meadow helps to highlight the subject. Nice work, Ken.

    So perplexing. Each seems to be ignoring the other. I do like this
