Elk Fest 2011

Bull Elk Near Estes Park

I shot (with my camera) this big elk during Elk Fest this weekend near Estes Park. The elk are usually in town wondering around hanging out at the golf course or in front yards. This one was spotted close to Rocky Mountain National Park. Most of these bulls pay little attention to people this time of year, but really watch out for competing bulls. This one charged another bull shortly after this picture. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a shot of that due to the limited light and visibility.

  1. Cool photo. We’re fulltime travelers (and fledgling photographers) and it looks like we were in Estes Park the same weekend as you. Pretty neat. We’ll be posting our Estes Park / Rocky Mountain photos and stories probably in a month or so.
