Bull Elk at Sunset

Tule Elk in Velvet, Point Reyes National Seashore

This bull was standing at about a 45 degree angle to the sun before it set.  This made for some strong sidelight and backlight.  He’s still wearing some of his winter coat.  He looks very healthy, but I think he’ll have to undergo a big growth-spurt to have a chance to breed this fall.
