Wipe Out

In Inuvik, Canada, two reindeer lose their footing while being herded across the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk ice road. Your Shot photographer Weronika Murray says, "Not all the animals are eager to cross the road, and some of them gave the herders a run for their money." This spring, 4,500 reindeer crossed the road to their calving grounds, in keeping with the annual tradition. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
