More Yellowstone Elk during the rut. My comments will start getting shorter for some of the wildlife, or I will have to start repeating myself.
This bull and his herd was shot September 24, 2006 on Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone. We spotted them high atop this mountain and set off on foot to photograph them. I guess we were the only ones that wanted the shot bad enough because there were plenty of people around but no one followed us. For me the climb was worth it to get the beautiful blue sky behind the elk.
