I see these in our local zoo but here we have a feel of the wild with the mother musk ox and her baby. I like the contrast between the bulk of the mother and the fragile sense of the baby musk ox, even at this distance the catchlight in the mother's eye and the light highlighting the forequarters of the mother (seemingly drawing her further into the image).

It really is a miniature of it's mother; wonderful to see, and a super shot.

Perfect companion capture - love that watchful eye of the mom looking out for her baby.
