One for Wapiti Wednesday that was taken this past Saturday in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The rut is still a few weeks away but you can get a sense that it is getting closer if you watch the behavior of the Elk bulls. This pair and a couple more were hanging out and seemingly getting along (for now) but they did engage in a small hint of what is to come.
The larger one on the right raised his head and closed in on the slightly smaller one, posing a bit of a challenge to it. It never went any further than that but you know the time is coming where these two will do battle for the affections of the ladies.
