| p.1 #7 · Yellowstone- A bugling elk |
Thanks Alrac, Colin, Tam, Ron and Ken.
Yes, I kept my distance and used a 400mm non-zoom, which is partly why the feet don't show. Also, the hooves are usually covered by the tallish grass in the meadows.
The year before, cold weather caused the elk to wander out of the park during the hunting season, and many of the biggest bulls were shot and killed by "sportsmen." So this guy only had 12 points and probably weighed between 700-900 pounds. Still, big enough to impress me.
