Photographer's Note

I’m posting this “close up” of this magnificent elk grazing through the Banff National Park in response to "jrzuffrrey" and "ninadev"’s comments in regards with not seeing its face. It’s creamy antlers looked like covered in velvet. They looked so soft you would wanna touch and feel them. Of course I did not do that!

Bull elk grow and shed antlers annually. Males use antlers to show dominance or to defend themselves. Bull elk grow up to 700 lbs. and can reach 5 ft. in height at the shoulder. Females are smaller than males reaching 500 lbs. and growing to 4.5 ft. at the shoulder.
