When Chasing Elk | Alberta Outdoor Photography

by on May 13, 2013

… you do not always get what you wish for. I parked my bottom in an area I know the ever elusive bull elk to frequent and I waited … and waited some more. Moved around the area a bit, but during this early May sunrise, there were no elk to be found. You just know they were hiding somewhere behind those trees, as it’s happened before.

See no elk … hear no elk. Ah, the joys of wildlife photography.


See you in the field!
