Bugle


A young bull bugles his challenge

If the dominate breeding bull were to take him serious he would be ready to flee without protest

After spending a few days with in Elk County during Pennsylvania elk rut, the woodlands of southern Pa seem strangely quiet. During my short stay the squealing, braying, grunting sounds of elk bugles filled the air only becoming quiet for a short time around mid day.

We definitely don't have deer like that in south Florida. That's a monster!

Amazing shot. Such a gorgeous animal. I love your little sparrow from you last post too. He does look like hes having a bad feather day.

This is the first year I've heard the bugling and it's just awe inspiring to stand there and listen.
