Visited my local elk herds
3

Slightly foggy, but had fun.

These poor cows. There used to be just one big bull in this herd this time of year. Then one insecure bull that you had to really watch for. Now something has happened to the big bulls, I think, and there were 6 or more bulls in the herd. These guys are 5 tined- big, but not gigantic like the others. They weren't really fighting today, but they sure pushed the cows around. They spent all day long "stealing" them from each other. The cows were not happy. The ranger said the big bulls wandered off the park boundaries, and he's probably right, because when this herd is poached within the park they get shy for a while.

I had the AF set to "release" rather than "focus". That was a mistake.

Poor cows were harassed by 6 or more bulls all day long. They spent more time getting out of the way than grazing.
