Great sense of motion and angle. I could also see this as a wider crop.

Great action frame of this trio on the move with several hooves off the ground. A little more room on each end would be nice if you have it. Well done! :)

It would be really nice to have more room especially in front of them, but this is a great capture of this trio on the run, David!  We've seen several images of musk ox standing still but not many on the move, so its good to see such a fine shot of them running and kicking up the snow.  Well done!

Very nice moving shot- the kicked-up snow helps to give a sense of motion. I like the way the three are placed together and their various foot positions. Well done!

Super action David. Must have been a wonderful sighting. Am guessing there might not have been much room as the r/h side snow suggests Musk Ox running ahead.
Make your life spectacular!

I agree with Cynthia, wonderful shot.
