More days go by and more elk spotted in the park. The young males are wise to stay away from the large males during the rut season, some keeping a balanced distance from the group controlled by the dominant male. Close enough to be in sight of the group for safety but far away from the large bull. 

Then there are the large male bulls, in search of female to fight for from the dominant male. The bull in the first picture was spotted as I was going by on the road. I found a place to stop and found a safe place away from the road and elk to take few pictures. Light rain was coming down and the light was low, I sat down and balanced the lens on my knee to over come the low speed due to lack of light to take the attached picture. Beautful animal.

Until next moment,
