Alpha Male - 3 of 3

Kananaskis, Alberta

The alpha male has decided to charge me and was rapidly closing the distance.
I did not move, not right away. I wanted to get a couple more shots.
Then I hurriedly moved away and scampered to the safety of my car.

Superb, this shot should be enlarged and put on display. He looks like you could reach out and touch him. Thank you for sharing.

I would get out of his way smartly too. Those are huge horns. A great shot with excellent details, and I can see that he is really eyeing you off. Well done.
