Default herd of elk

a herd of elk strolled out of the woods at Ecola state park while i was there last Saturday, and spent half an hour or so just grazing on the lawn, oblivious to all the people with cameras and flashes... it was dusk on a cloudy, overcast evening, the light was "gone", so i had to crank the ISO to 1600, but i did manage to catch a decent shot or two... all handheld with the 100-400L, only resized and sharpened a bit, no NR done...

a young bull, probably about 20 yards away... 105mm, 1/125 @ f/5...

there were two young bulls in the herd. here it looks like maybe they're engaging in some friendly "practice" for the rutting season ahead... 130mm, 1/80 @ f/5...

one of the 15 or so cows in the herd... 135mm, 1/100 @ f/5

and a juvenile, 275mm, 1/125 @ f/5.6...

Those are really quite decent for such crummy conditions. Nicely captured. Steve
