There is a story behind every picture. The nice looking bull elk shown in this series was intimidated by a bigger, older bull and lost his harem of cows about two hours earlier! There was no fight, but the cows just walked off with the other bull leaving this elk with only six or seven immature females. He puts his best face and stance on inspite of a big loss. Perhaps next year he will grow into a lead role!

These pictures were taken this past week in the Rocky Mountain National Park using a Sony RX10iii during the rut. Moose were also active during a change of weather from hot to cold.

Thanks for your kind comments fredtoo. I shoot both this Sony RX10iii and a Canon 5D Mark 3. I took most of these shots in the time it would have taken to get my tripod/gimbal set up. The Sony sits next to me in the pickup and is usually the first choice for quick shots!

It doesn't look like he is too disappointed. But he is a mature 6 X 6 bull, he should be getting a piece of the action this year. Great shots.

Outstanding clarity and detail - like looking at him live! His position in the first shot is perfect. It is animated and very appealing.

Yes, he is a mature 6 x 6 bull, but his competition made him look more average! Thanks for looking!
