Two bull Elk battle for dominance in Banff National Park at sunrise recently. Swipe right ➡️ for the whole series.
The clackity-clack of rattling antlers was the only sound ringing out on this particular morning, as the cold -25C air amplified this battle across the valley. Each bull took turns lunging at each other, before disappearing silently into the forest, as quickly as they appeared.
I've been very fortunate to capture both Elk and Moose sparring in the last few weeks, an incredible event of nature.
