A warm welcome to TN, Franklin. : )
This elk has quite an impressive set of antlers.
Judging by the shape of them, is this a youngster?
Looks like you got quite close to it.
Great shot and thanks for sharing.

Hello Franklin, welcome to TN.
A very nice photo of this Bull Elk in velvet, I'm sure he carried an impressive rack a few months later. You have captured good detail with wonderful natural colors and just the right exposure. Well done!!
I was in the Rocky Mountain National Park back in 2000 and vividly remember the gorgeous scenery as well as the many elk herds.
