>>> camera, a photographer gets a little too up close and personal with his subject. take a look at this. he was shooting an elk when the elk then approached him. he decided to stay put, protect himself, lay low in hope the elk would lose interest and walk away . he continues to poke and prod him. this went on for apparently more than seven minutes until eventually the photographer got up, finally and slowly walked away. the elk left him there. the elk was fine, all was good.

>> he realized when he got up he was sitting on a baby elk.

>> can you imagine your heart would be in your throat.
