Tim,
I would say something like "Mind-blowing!" but I feel uncomfortable trying to talk like a 50-year-old youngster.
So I'll just say that these are swell pictures.
Very swell .

Lovely presentation. Such and intersting palette of hues in these images.

Great way to take in both the Elk and the scenery Tim, quite the place to be I imagine, thanks for sharing
Picks are 2,3 and 4 but that's not to say I don't like all the others too!

Karl


Thank you Karl. It really is quite the place to be, I would to be there with you sometime buddy. I appreciate the good words and don't you think I wasn't hearing you in my head on some of these

Great job on the ladies Tim. #4 gets my vote for sure. I only see one little bull in these shots, where are the big guys?

Rob


Thanks so much Rob. The bulls were off in the hills. We asked the rangers about that, the bulls were conspicuously absent. They said they leave the herd after mating. That's a first for me, the herds I normally photograph have the alpha bull in them all the time.

Ok, so that first shot just blew my mind. I tried to picture myself having the opportunity to shoot that shot and wondering if I would ever have had the where with all to compose it the way you did. It really is brilliant!
That big monster elk is gorgeous and the pair with right head turns is so very cool. Love the wide shots to give perspective since I've never visited it really does give a nice idea of what the terrain is like.
I'm sad to say the only elk I've come across is packaged in my freezer (purchased not personally dispatched)...now I feel guilty...nah, not really
Eric


Hi Eric, this is like deja vu, I thought I just saw you

I'll tell you how the first shot played. 2 bodies, one with 800 and one with 500 and then coming up on this gal. Quick grab the 70-300 Marla and hand it to me. Faster!!! Here hold the 800, faster!!!! Damn the beast moved and is looking away. Meoooooow!!! Got her to look back. Really!

So glad you like the set. There are so many Elk there, some tame some really wild.

Thank you my friend

Tim

A most excellent post Tim! #1 is pretty cool, but #4 is my choice as best of bunch. In an ideal world, I would like to see a little separation of the animals, or a bit tighter, just so the snout of the little one doesn't end right where the neck of the other one starts. Minor nit, as I'd love to have any of these in my collection.


Ken, thanks for the thoughtful comment. As for your nit I could not agree with you more. Yellowstone is one of those places where getting separation is most difficult. I suppose there are worse things in this world

Outstanding Tim,
These are all great, but something about the closeness and head angle in #1 that wins me over.

Mark


Thank you very much Mark, so glad that shot pulls you in!

This is a really nice set, Tim -- great landscapes with elk living in them. #1 is my favorite -- the pose and the open country behind go together really well.
Mark


Yes indeed Mark, those Elk have a great living room! Thanks for the great words!

Yes Birdie, I wanted to include some wider shots for those that have never been there. I enjoyed shooting wider also, I should do that more often. Thanks for the picks and good words.
