On a number of occasions when the herd bull was otherwise engaged, this bull would rush into the harem and begin checking the cows. As the herd bull would rush in to vanquish the intruder the non-typical would literally run to get out of his way.
I overheard a local elk guide explaining that non-typical bulls very seldom fight as their malformed antlers do not provide them with the protection as does a typical rack.
That may very well be the case but the elk fight that I was to soon witness occurred between this bull and a smaller rival.
Another gorgeous "canvas painting".
What a thrilling time you and your brother had with the Elk.
Another wonderful elk shot, Salty. You and Willard must have been so excited to be able to see these animals and get these great shots.
Stunning portrait. And of course a beautiful animal :-) Well done
Salty: What a crown this guy has on his antler. It reminds me of an animal I saw in New Zeland on a TV show.
An excellent shot you captured - I love how he's turned toward you.
fabulous photo of the elf. His antlers are amazing. I also have elk pictures today.
Love this photo. The color and depth-of-field are fantastic!
Sorry, I forgot to mention the informative, interesting commentary. Nice post!
