All Hail The King by kkart All Hail The King by kkart
A bull Elk keeps a watchful eye over me and his harem in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado during the annual autumn rut. This guy was a biggie and made for some great photographs. Not too much longer now and I will be back up there photographing the rut once again. This is one of my favorite Elk shots from last season. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

And soon wolf parents will take him down to feed their pups. Which is what needs to happen. It keeps the Elk population in check.
