Horse Scratching, Canada

Photograph by Michael Christopher Brown

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

Relief is a rolling back scratch in the brush for a hobbled horse freed of its saddle. Several outfitters guide clients into the Muska-Kechika Management Area in the Canadian Rockies, and some take hunters, who pay thousands of dollars for a shot at big game.

See more photographs from the November 2008 feature story "Northern Giant."
