Bugling in the Fog

Pennsylvania, with its variety of wildlife offers much to the outdoor photographer but nothing else equals the awe inspiring thrill of the rutting bull elk appearing ghostlike through the fog on a cool September morning.

Reports from our friends in the Pennsylvania Wilds indicate that the elk rut is beginning and I can hardly wait until it is time for my annual visit to watch, photograph, and experience the thrill of spending time with these majestic animals of The Pennsylvania Wilds.

For up to date information on the happenings in and around Pennsylvania's elk range visit my brother's blog Pennsylvania Wildlife Photographer and Support Pa Elk.

Absolutely breathtaking. Much better than the ones I took last evening down at our Elk Viewing spot. We cannot get too close to them, unless they happen to chase the cows close to the road. This shot looks like you were pretty close.

Wow, he is the handsome prince of the woods I should say. For the past 2 years we have experienced Elk rutting season out in Colorado and this year, we shall again. I love their bugle-ling all night long, but my husband does not...~
