    Battling Bison, confused elk and a grouse attack

    Today was cloudy with mixed rain and snow but lots of fun on the Bison Range. Not breeding season so the bulls were just testing their testosterone level, The elk could not figure out which way to go and the blue grouse was protecting the road at high point. Sure is fun to be a volunteer here during spring.

    Hi, Dave
    LOL! I like this series. They speak of the headiness of Spring. Grouse can be brazen and bold. I have one that plays chicken with my car as I drive up the dirt road home. The elk remind me of the "push me-pull you" in Dr. Doolittle. It is nice to see buffalo up close.

    Since these are candids, I would only suggest that you use a consistent signature for all three and maybe not white? Imho, it was a bit of a detractant. To make it easier for you, maybe create a Signature Brush?

    I usually use lightroom 3 and that is the middle picture but for some odd reason it did not work in pics 1 and 3 not sure why. So used picasa there. If anyone knows why LR3 didn;t work please let me know.

    Love these photos and I think I envy you your volunteer job (what exactly do you do?). The bison compound in Riding Mountain National Park is one of my favorite spots in Manitoba.
