Really nice shot of the bull exhibiting the Flehmen Response (or perhaps bugling?). The precipitation adds some nice texture.

He was bugling. There was another bull about a half mile away that was also bugling.

As always, I like to share a few of the calendar images I've picked out for my Yellowstone-related themes. I do a Yellowstone theme each year with new photos, and decided to add a separate Yellowstone Birds calendar this year. The Weasel & Mongoose calendar also has a few GYE species.

Image

Common raven
Image

American pelicans
Image

Great photos -- make me homesick to be back in the park! I agree that mountain goat one is special, but also loved the two moose in the stream -- wonderful feeling of peace and beauty in that shot! Thanks.

Thanks Linda. It's always hit or miss with them, and we barely got those two when a client spotted them near the road on our way back down. I couldn't believe they still had remnants of their old coats clinging on at that point... normally in fall they're looking quite handsome (barring a radio collar and ear tags!).

Oooh, I'm at 943. Guess I'll have to start deleting soon.
I have never clicked on the auto, so I don't know if I have it.

Thanks. One thing I'm confused about with Flickr is if they count your "Auto Upload" album against your 1000 photo limit. This album is all that is putting me over the 1000 photo limit. I'm not sure how I ever got this album or how to get rid of it.

Do you have the Flickr app on a phone or tablet ?...if so open app,go to settings(3 vertical dots on top right) and "autoloader" is the first setting.Mine was on and I do not allow auto uploads from my camera to any website or cloud service so I thinking that this was switched on by default.

Now this post says the new limit is 1000 pics but my free account says I have 1000 TB,maybe this has not been implemented yet
Thanks, I turned it off, but I still have some 275 pics in my auto upload album. I guess I'll have to go through them all and get rid of a bunch.

I recently was able to spend a couple days in Estes Park and RMNP. It began to snow just as we arrived on Oct. 7, and snowed lightly for the two days we were there. We were able to hike around Bear Lake and Sprague Lake. On the way back into town, we ran across a big elk bull guarding a harem of twenty or so cows. One bull was lounging in some rocks beside the highway, and one even showed up right behind the condo we rented. Although towards the end of the rut, we did get to see and hear quite a bit of bugling. It was so gray and drab outside that the occ pics were lifeless and required quite a bit of tweaking to be interesting at all, at least with my plebian camera.

It's probably only a big deal to those who use Flickr for storage. I ditched Pro last year when I finally realized all I was paying for was storage I didn't need. I just went through and culled a number of images to get below 1000, and I'll do it again down the road. I use Flickr as another way of sharing with a wider audience. Ultimately it nets me almost zero business, but I have always enjoyed sharing my view of the world with folks, so as long as it doesn't cost me anything, I'll stick with my account there.

Nice that you found them. We spent all our time scouring the edges of the first meadow on the PV trail... never went into the far trees to look further. Maybe that's why we struck out.
