There were several bulls in the open, each one doing his thing. After taking pictures of others I started focusing on the one closest to me. It was too close to get its whole body in the picture. Instead of moving back, I decided to create a picture of the male by leaving parts of it out of the frame. What to leave out and what to keep is always a personal preference, what looks good to the eyes. To help the elk stand out, it helped having some distance in the background, once it tilted its head and eye in sharp focus, I had my picture.

Until next moment,
