This picture shows a "slow crossing" where the elk stream out of the pastures and then casually graze their way to their bedding areas. There still are bits of fall color to spice up the images. Off camera is a satellite bull that is hanging around the herd hoping to catch a stray.
My workshops at the Ponca Elk Education Center on Friday and Saturday will touch on getting these shots.
