It was the rutting season and these two bull Elks were testing their strength at Mammoth Springs, Yellowstone Park, Montana, USA. Although this match wasn’t particularly serious it was watched with much interest by nearby bulls for future reference. If either of these bulls had been attempting to steal the others cows the encounter would have been much more intense, to the point of serious injury.

Canon EOS 550D. Canon EF 70-300mmIS lens.

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    Whew! Would love to hear the sounds of this clash, too. Terrific work, Aussie Ann!

  • Thank you G. Yes, I was thinking later I should have video’d it too, but I was too intent on trying to get a good natural looking shot. Talk about one track mind!!!:)
