October 27, 2016: Bull Elk, Banff National Park

 

It's mating season in the Rocky Mountains.  Dominant bull elks nervously watch their harems as curious young bulls study them with interest at a safe distance.  At some point, the youngsters challenge the older bulls for control of all those cows and a terrific battle ensues.

Here's a few images from a recent visit to Banff National Park.
