They surely did notice you, but not as a threat... Great opportunity, and excellently used. Besides, it proves that the camera absolutely must be at hand 24/7 - otherwise it is worthless, whatever type, model and/or price!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this at Parc Omega, a wildlife reserve north of Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Time
This was taken mid morning
Lighting
The light was fantastic that morning as it was cold and overcast and snowing lightly
Equipment
I used my Canon 7D and Canon 70-200 2.8 IS lens
Inspiration
I love deer and elk and although the rut was long over as this was mid February, these two huge elk didn't mind having a bit of a playful fight.
Editing
I did clean the background a bit, there were clumps of dirty snow here and there which I found distracting and added nothing to the image. I did a tight crop in order to get just their heads and antlers. not much noise reduction was done and A bit of unsharp mask was used. This was originally done in colour but I felt converting it to B&W made more of an dramatic impact
In my camera bag
I usually carry my Canon 70-200 2.8 lens as well as my Canon 100 2.8 macro and Canon 24-105 f4 lens.
Feedback
My only advice for these type of shots is to use extreme caution as these animals are use to people but still very wild
