It is the start of mating season for the Elk in the Canadian Rockies. I did not realize this until later (reading signs posted) but this Bull Elk was very kind to let me take his photo. They can be very aggressive this time of year, (early and into the late fall), and charge at humans. I spoke softly to him and thanked him for allowing me to take his photo. He seemed pleased. I felt amazing shooting this series. :D
