Behind the Lens: Kevin Sontag

Young Elk Splashing- This photo was taken at the Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park & Wildlife Safari outside of Omaha, Nebraska. When I was planning my trip to Omaha, I learned about this park where you can observe and photograph animals from your car as you drive through. I spotted this young elk playing in a pond, taking his front-right hoof and splashing the water. I got the camera focused and waited for him to splash once more. He took his time, almost as if he was teasing me, but he finally did it once more, and I got the shot.
