Description

This bull elk (I believe he's know as "Touchdown") and a harem of cows were hanging around the west side of the Mammoth Hotel. He was later seen, by others in our group, to go across the street and pick a fight with another bull.

These are the other two elk (a cow with a calf) that we saw. This shot and the one of the calf were taken about 10 min before sunrise and were really stretching the limits of the camera and me hand holding it to shoot.

Description

In Yellowstone NP last week for several days. Usual areas in Madison valley were devoid of elk. Only saw this one near the Madison campground and two others nearby (see http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/903547) on a different day. We heard wolves in the area which may explain the scarceness of elk.
