Elk – Yukon Territory, Canada

Hope you guys like wildlife photos!

This male elk was protecting his harem, watching as we pulled up and snapped photos.

A female was about 15 feet away; she walked up to the edge as if checking in with him to see if it was okay to stay there and graze:

The rest of the harem grazed nearby and stayed pretty calm while we eavesdropped.    The light was poor so these photos needed touching up but we definitely checked “ELK” off our list! 🙂

    Great pic, like not just seeing the wildlife, but sitting quite and watching. Can’t wait to see the next lot you’ve got.

    We went all the way through Canada and all we saw was some buffalo and a fox. You guys must be charmed. Kati

    Lovely color. I like how the strong green background shows the strength of the male while the females are highlighted by the grass.

    Great pictures! I also loved the pictures of the grizzly bear. Can’t wait to see what else you find on your trip.
