Just as the trees metamorphasize and change during the fall months in the rockies so do the animals. The first chills of old man winter spur the elk into there annual rut, an experience that's amazing to see in person. This expedition I set out for was initially just for landscapes. Typically I will trot out a telephoto just in case. My preparedness was rewarded as the elk rut literally broke out while I was visiting. For those who have seen it in person than you know how amazing it is. For those who haven't I hope my pictures will give justice to the event. C$C welcome

Wow, great images.
I really like 2 & 3. Classic images of bull elk.
The fighters in 5 & 6 are youngsters. A couple of years from now that would be a completely different story.
#1 - a stare like that would have me looking for the nearest tree to climb
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

I've never seen anything like this. (Somehow Richard Attenborough isn't the same.) TFS

#1 and 3 for me. I would have like a wider shot, where one sees the elk in its natural habitat. TFS Chris .
