I had a great camping trip to the Buffalo National River area this past weekend and was able to view the great Fall colors. Seeing the Elk is always a bonus.
I hope you have enjoyed my photos this week in reference to this trip.
Yesterday I posted a photo of a Bull Elk that was bedded. He didn’t stay bedded for very long because another large Bull Elk entered the field and made a slow approach toward him. You could tell by the way they were acting that it was fixing to get exciting.
When both Elk got close to each other they began light sparring but then after several minutes it seemed to me that it got a little more aggressive. As you can see in the video, the Bull Elk that was bedded won the match.
Note: I have the sound turned off in the video because all you would hear would be the crowd of people talking.
A large group of us photographers were photographing this large Bull Elk last weekend at Boxley Valley here in Arkansas when the Elk decided to bed down.
I wonder if the Elk enjoy the Fall foliage like us humans?
The Buffalo National River area is one of the top places here in Arkansas to see some great Fall colors and the Elk are just a bonus.
This past weekend the Fall foliage was at peak or a little past peak. With rains and high winds in the forecast the leaves want be around much longer.
I am always amazed to see the different activities a large Bull Elk can perform while having a large set of antlers. You can see in the below photo that this Elk has a reach. You can also see that the antler is touching his back.
This Bull Elk was feeding in Boxley Valley near the Highway 43 and 21 intersection here in Arkansas.
