Caribou Paparazzi

This is in Denali National Park in Alaska. The young caribou stands in the middle of the road while visitors snap shots. I loved all the wildlife in Denali but the people were almost more fascinating. Tourists often only see through their lens and forget to just experience their surroundings. I feel like this Caribou is saying "Really, another photo?"
