Norway. Early evening. The Storm wouldn't let up. All of the Musk Oxen just stood, still facing the storm; they were on top of the mountain and had nowhere to go. The Musk Ox you see in this photograph was the biggest; I believe he was the leader. He moved himself to the right (winds were blowing from right to left). Once he was the last one on the right, he sat down. Soon they all sat down after him in a row. Within 15 minutes he was covered in snow and had become a shield for the others, taking on the winds and snow, so they didn't have to as much. He didn't move an inch; soon, I nearly lost sight of him as he got covered with snow.
He was doing his responsibility of protecting his herd, with no care of the harm that could come to him. A real leader worries about himself last.
