More Bull 8A...


Yesterday's post featured Bull 8A and so does today's. If you have not figured out yet by my comments you will be seeing more of this bull in the future. Yesterday I mentioned photographing this bull and another one posturing for some time but not fighting that particular time. These were taken shortly after he broke it off, he walked up close to a group of us did some bugling and took out his frustration on the ground (you will be seeing those and the posturing sometime in the future). I would rather photograph bulls without collars but I will photograph what I see. Some people remove the collars in Photoshop but that is something I do not want to do, for me this is a record of this bull. I have been going to Elk County now for three years and hope to continue for many years, at some point I want too be able to recognize the elk by name, even those that do not have collars. I am not really fond of these photos as I think my post processing could have been better, but then I really didn't come home with the high quality images that I did last year. Maybe because the weather was bad and lighting poor many of the days and partly because I do not always perform behind the camera the way I should. This just proves that because the camera looks big and fancy it does not always take good pictures, it takes an effort on the part of the photographer also.

I enjoyed the posts on 8A. This was the third or fourth year that I have photographed him.

It was certainly hard to find good light this year and most of what I took are "pictures" instead of being "photographs", because of the dull lighting.

Well, I don't know why you don't particularly like these shots, as the expressions are awesome to me! And just spending time with these guys has to be amazing!

About the new Outdoor Blogging Network: Seems like a very informational site. It just started up, this week being it's second week. I haven't noticed much more traffic, but the blog list is quite small as of yet...
