King of the Rockies

A bull elk in Rocky Mountain National Park.

I sat and watched this bull laying in the grass for about an hour. Finally he stood up and posed with the mountains in the background.

Congrats on this being selected as Photo of the Day! It is quite deserving - loved this the moment I first saw it.

Beautiful photograph! RMNP is one of my favorite places, and I have spent many hours watching the elk, moose, marmots and sheep. A photo like this makes it all worth while. Very well done.

Thank you! It's also one of my favorite places and I'm very lucky in the God gave me the opportunity to move to Boulder from South Louisiana earlier this year and RMNP is almost in my back yard.
