The local elk herd was below our house this September 21. They group up and bugle all night long during the mating season. These were taken at dawn.

This year the herd included an extraordinary number of bulls, including this relative youngster. He's big but no where near as imposing as the older bulls. He spent his time circling the outside of the herd, trying to sneak in toward the females when the two most dominant bulls were distracted.
