p.1 #1 · Wading Elk. . .


I followed this guy as he walked across the valley in Yellowstone. (Me and about 50 other people )

I saw some water coming up and wondered what he would do. I really wanted him to go through it, and not around it, or at least stop for a drink or something. He walked right in it for me and I fired a few more shots. I saw the splash as he took a step and then saw the shutter close at just that moment. YES! All I could think about from that moment on was that I really hoped that the timing was right, as I knew that would be the shot. Once he moved off into the woods, I couldn't get to the preview fast enough. There it was. Out of all of them, I knew this would be the one, and I believe it is.


Looking forward to seeing this on my wall. That is the proper way to 'mount a majestic Bull Elk'. In a nice frame.

Thanks Harsha. Virtually no crop. I'm really liking this camera! I have a large version of this image on my 27" imac, and the color, detail and image sharpness is amazing. I'm so glad I had my tripod for this one. I had the ball head set a little loose so I could still pan and make slight adjustments, and didn't have to be too particular where I set the tripod back down as I moved, but still took a lot of 'me' out of the equation. Would have not been happy to lose this moment to camera shake from "Buck Fever".

Thanks guys.

There were certainly more bison than elk. I got lucky with this guy. Even back home in Idaho, I always seemed to see the cows, but no bulls. So, I was a little excited to see this one. I had hoped I had enough glass for him, and I am actually glad I didn't have "enough". If I had a big prime, I would not have caught this shot. It is a trade off. There were times I wish I had the big glass, but then, I got so lucky on this shot. Hey, even a blind squirrel can find a nut!

Thanks everyone. And have a great time in Yellowstone. It is one of my favorite places on earth. Even when I was there 42 years ago.
