These young Elk were caught sparring early one morning during the rut in Elk County. Unfortunately they were on a hill side making them hard to photograph and the light was not very good yet. With the movement of the animals it requires a faster shutter speed to freeze the action and that means a higher ISO increasing the noise in the images (that is very noticeable in these). These were taken with the Nikon D300 with the 70-200 f2.8 and the 1.4 attached. They were all shot at 2000 ISO, 1/100 second at f4.
