Hello Ryan! I really like your new postings of elks and bisons. Did you take the pictures in a National Park (like Yellowstone, e.g.) or do these animals live in an open area without fences? Must have been quite an adventure to take these shots! Thanks for sharing! Cheers, Anne

Thanks Anne! These are in a city park called Lone Elk Park, where there are deer, elk, bison, geese and ducks. It's over 500 acres fenced in, but the road goes right through and there aren't fences separating the animals from the cars or people. Cheers, Ryan

That's great, Ryan. I'd really like to go there and take pictures of all the animals! Cheers, Anne

Anne, I was very excited because before I got my telephoto lens I couldn't have taken any of these, they were just too far away. So I'm going a little overboard on the animals for now!
