This time of the year the Male Elk separate from the Females and usually find other males to associate with, though generally in packs of 2 or 3. Captured in Rocky Mountain National Park as I rounded a corner, he was in perfect light and just within the focal range of my 300mm. He didn’t seem to mind me to much as I was hanging out the car window clicking away. In fact, he was quite calm, allowing me to take as many shots as I wish, even allowing me to check my histogram and exposure settings. I wish all wildlife could be like that lol If you notice, his antlers are just starting to come back in, fuzzy, it is referred to as being ‘in velvet’.
