Unfortunately had a computer meltdown this week so in the process of rebuilding and thus late posting. That aside, had good times taking this image. This bull was spotted in RMNP going into a wooded area one evening. He had a decent harem with him. I was not able to capture a shot so decided to be in the general location the following morning. Lo and behold he crossed back into the field just before light. I took a few pictures but did not get any decent keepers. About an hour or so after light another bull came down the mountain to check out the bull's harem. I was positioned in the woods in between them. The bull pictured was the original guy and came right into the woods with 40 yards of me and began bugling. I continued to position myself hoping for a clear shot of him while he kept on eye out for the other bull. He bugled several times. I liked this image the best of the series because you can see steam coming out of his mouth. Only wish I could have gotten the entire sent of antlers into the frame. Blue Skies.
