Yellowstone. I wasn't in position to capture the bear killing the elk calf. But by the time he dragged it under the tree I was calmed down enough to take a rather gory sequence. I kept one eye on the bear and one eye on my escape. This is full frame from the camera so I was 30 yards away from the action.
