At the beginning of rutting season in Yellowstone this bull elk is
gathering his harem. Here in the evening we came upon this young elk cow
and were so close we could hear her breathing and chewing as the great
bull eyes us from across the stream. Evening is a magical time as the
light plays tricks on our vision. We see the cool tones of the forest in
the background and the golden tones of the meadow in the foreground.
Both warm and cool colors are reflected in the bodies of the elk sharply
defining them at first then almost causing them to disappear into the
shadows as the sun continues to set.
