The Fall Rut

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Jeff Rose

On the freezing cold morning of the first frost in Arkansas I was lucky enough to catch these bull elk performing their annual mating ritual known as the rut. During this period bulls compete for the cows attention and defend their harem by challenging opponents to dramatic antler wrestling matches.

Location: Boxley Valley, Arkansas, USA
