Artist's Description

Each day, the wildlife in our region and around the world may face their own olympic trials… to stay alive, to avoid a predator, to prove they are better than another in their herd or pack, to find food in a frozen or inhospitable land. These elk are sparring months before the rut arrives, no doubt to hone their skills. Canon 7D, low light, ISO640, f 5.6, 1/500, 400mm focal length, RAW, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA. Views 239 and Faves 22 as of 6 August 2012; see also the RuttleWild Video Sampler for some olympic duels between pronghorn antelope. Other “Wildlife Olympics”:
- Wildlife Olympics – Bison Headlock, Wrestling Moves In The Wild, and
- Wildlife Olympics – Tricky Dismount, Mountain Goat Kid
- Wildlife Olympics – Syncho Swimming Wannabes, Trumpeter Swans
