Artist's Description

A few of us Bubblers met up in Rocky Mountain National Park to try and shoot the Elk Rut. Through the rest of the year, male elk (bulls) stay together in loose little bachelor herds, or alone. During Rut, however, they fight off all other males and try to gather as large a harem of females (cows) as they can. There are fewer males than females, as they spend their valuable winter fat fighting each other, and mating as many times as they can. Many times the males won’t make it through the winters, as they don’t have enough time after Rut to put the weight back on.
Many thanks to Jay Ryser and dretke1 for a wonderful morning! it managed to rain on us most of the time, but it was hard to mind when everywhere I laid my eyes, it looked like Heaven.
