I need to say this first, please TURN UP YOUR VOLUME. The video last 23 seconds, the cow eats while the calf seems to focus it's attention on the two of us. You will hear bulls bugling in the area as well as Haney's shutter release. The beeping noise is his auto focus, before the morning shooting was over he learned how to turn that off, good job Haney. As the video plays listen closely to the last couple of seconds and the sound that comes from the Elk. Now that was funny! Note to self, remember when you are recoding video and that it does record sound. Sorry I may be older on the outside but I am still a little boy mentally and darn glad I am. The video was taken my last morning of shooting. The cow photograph was taken the same time as yesterday's calf photo. Some people will only photograph bulls, I don't care what it is as long as it is wildlife and presents me with the right opportunity. This cow did, with color in the background, catch light in the eyes and a mouthful of food it was as if she begged me to take her photograph, and I am glad I did.
I hope you enjoyed my Elk post this week, I have plenty more. I will try and mix something in each week with the Elk but I have many other photos and videos I want to post on the Elk rut.
