"Bugle Boy"

American Elk  -  Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Every autumn the annual rut, or breeding season, of the American elk takes place. The mountains and valleys of Rocky Mountain National Park reverberate with the sounds of bugling bull elk as the gather their harems in a timeless ritual that began eons ago.

This is the third release in my "Mammals of North America in Black & White" series. It was made a few week ago, while guiding a friend in Rocky Mountain National Park.

"Rise 'N Shine"

American Elk  -  Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I made this image just before sunrise last Sunday in Horseshoe Park, while guiding Mike Caroff, a friend from California. It's always good when you can be at the right place at the right time.

Someone recently contacted me stating that being in the right place at the right time is the result of spending more time in the field. That's absolutely true. You will never be in the right place sitting at home on the sofa. You've got to spend time in the field. This is the secret to making great wildlife images.
