When visiting Grand Canyon National Park, I make a point of searching for herds of Elk within the Park grounds. I hope to capture good photographs of one of the Elk males. The Elk of Grand Canyon are the Rocky Mountain species, and they are protected by the National Park Service. During the rut season in the fall the bulls and their herd of cows and calves are often seen near the south rim. They are active, protective, and potentially dangerous. I always keep a good distance from the bulls. They are adept at hiding in the thick woods that surround them, which can make them difficult to find. But seeing just one of these incredible creatures, is nature at its best.
