The Challenge

Yellowstone National Park

Limited Edition of 50 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

The majestic elk or wapiti(waapiti, Shawnee and Cree nations) is one of the prized animals of the west and especially of Yellowstone. These large deer once roamed across most of North America and in recent years have been reintroduced into the Appalachian region of the eastern U.S. along with the states of Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Elk are one of the main food sources for wolves in the park and the herds have declined since the wolf reintroduction.

This morning I had driven to West Yellowstone to get gas and a few supplies and on my way back I saw the cars off the road of people watching the elk. I knew the elk were in this area which was part of the reason I planned on being there just after sunrise. I pulled off the road and set up and was able to spend over an hour photographing this amazing bull and his harem of cows. There was a younger bull hanging on the outskirts of the herd and this big bull kept calling out his challenge. More than once I saw him chase off the young bull but it was too far away to capture with the camera.

I cropped this image to a 1:2 ratio panoramic to better compose the image.
