Fighting to Stay on Top by papatheo Fighting to Stay on Top by papatheo
This bull Elk is pretty torn up from his battles for dominance. We stayed with him as he followed his females into the meadow. He seemed to be having a problem with one of them... looked like she had ideas of changing partners.

Wow, amazing shot here! This is one of those times where it appears that you were in the right place at the right time--even the scenery around him looks perfect.

:nod: I'll say... we had even rented some really good long lenses. This poor guy was bleeding in a few places apparently from a recent fight with another bull!!!

That must have been really nice! What a feeling to be in the presence of a survivor like him!
