    Sometimes you search far and wide for wildlife and then carefully work to get close enough for a good shot. Sometimes a bull elk walks right passed your parked car and poses for you... This was one of those right by Mammoth in Yellowstone.

    Classic pose in the first shot.

    I had one just like this guy stick his face out nicely a couple of weeks ago - right before I was set up to shoot after getting out on the trails. By the time I was ready to shoot all I got was a nice image of him looking the other way before leaving :eek:

    He has a pugnacious nose. Looks a bit like am MMA fighter. We had a park elk standing next to the road in Yellowstone last week.

    Very cool Kyle!

    One of the things I really enjoyed about Mammoth Hot Springs was all of the wildlife just walking next to people and cars like we are just their cousin Ted.
