Rocky Mountain Elk

It was late enough in the day that the canyon was shaded when this bull took a little mud wallow and then a quick dip in the Gardneir River. 7D2, Sigma 150-600mm@ 150mm, F5, 1/100, ISO 1600, +0.33 EC, beanbag. Thanks for any comments or suggestions, Dave

I like the pose, almost like he was galloping. The vantage point of looking downward is a little unfortunate but not a deal-breaker. I am tempted to clone out the strand that touches his eye.

David: I like how you have caught the elk in mid stride and that he is decorated a bit with grass in his antlers. Richard
