Elk Hiding in Beach Grass

This photo shows elk hiding in plain sight in sea grass along the beach in Seaside, Oregon. I spotted this large herd of elk (only a portion are pictured here) in the early morning of Feb. 12, 2014 following a violent storm the night before along the beach in Seaside, Oregon. I followed them at a distance with my 300mm long zoom lens for about an hour or so as they finally crossed the Necanicum River which flows into the ocean from there. It was one of the most memorable moments of photography in my life.
