A Watchful Mother

Did you ever have the feeling that your mother may have had eyes in the back of her head? How is it that mothers always seem to know everything?

This cow elk is grazing, but she is also keeping an eye open for potential danger to her little one in the background. Her calf had her fill and is now taking a rest from the day’s activities. Mom is still eating and also watching everything around them. You can see that even as she is eating her eye is still wide open and scanning the area for any trouble, just as a watchful mother should.
