Yesterday evening I shared an image showing the sights of the season to come with fall foliage. Here is one depicting the sound of the season, that of a massive elk bull calling to the cows nearby.
Taken at the end of September last year in Rocky Mountain National Park, this handsome fellow found himself without a harem but he was doing his best to rectify that issue.
A larger, even more impressive bull had gathered up all the cows but this guy was sounding off hoping to lure away some of the ladies without having to directly confront the big guy. In the end, it didn’t work but he sure looked cool while trying. 😉
The elk rut is starting to kick off in the Colorado high country and as you would expect, soon I will be heading that way to capture the action.
