Bull Elk in Snow by La-Vita-a-Bella Bull Elk in Snow by La-Vita-a-Bella
Due to the thousands and thousands of requests for more elk shots (okay, maybe it was only two but who's counting?), I am posting a closeup of the bull elk.

I do love the snow on his antlers...this was before he shook them off.

Entered in the AnimalFrenzy winter animal contest [link]

The focus is actually on his butt because he moved a bit...I had to manually focus because the snow was so heavy that it threw the auto focus off.

Hello there!
I absolutely love the way you've portrayed winter and the way animals seem to transform under it's sheets of snow. You captures a gorgeous animal in a tender and almost vulnerable moment.

I've featured you here! --> [link]

This is a stunning photogaph and it deserves all the attention it can get!
