Antelope at the National Bison Range is one of those pictures that you have to look at closely.  The image is taken in Montana, north of Missoula, on one of the best kept secrets in Montana. the Black and White image features three antelope not two that most people see at first glance.  Camera: Nikon F100 Lens Nikon 80-200

5x5 Bull Elk in Timber is another "look closely" photo.  If you look at the center of the photo, you will see the antlers of the elk laying in the downed timber.  Camera Nikon 6006 lens 80-200

The Same one Close Up provides a different perspective from below the elk from a distance of about 15 yards.  This is the first time that I had observed an elk bugle from a prone position.  Camera Nikon 6006 Lens 80-200

Elk in the Gallitan River Drainage:  This elk was just over the edge of a hill.  Staying still and making slow movements allowed a natural  photo to be taken at about 20 yards.  Camera Nikon F-4 Lens 80-200

Elk with his September herd:  It is hard to see anything more majestic than a large bull elk with his "harem" of cows.  this bull was evidently the "herd" bull with some surrounding cows.  The sound of the shrill whistle in the timber in September in the Rocky Mountains of Montana will always be remembered.  Camera Nikon F-4 Lens 80-200.

Same elk without his herd:  This guy was running over to check up on another potential challenger to his territory.  He returned shortly to gather up his "harem" and return to the deep timber.

Antelope (Pronghorn) Buck:  Here's a unique photo with the sun setting low in the west with the antelope positioned between me and the sun.  Camera: Nikon F-4 Lens 80-200

Antelope at the Watering Hole:  Photo with several young antelope bucks gathering around the watering hole.  I especially enjoy their reflections in the water.  Camera:  Nikon F4 with 80-200  Lens.

Bear Grass:  Normally only found at elevations above 5000 feet or so, the plants are very striking and vivid white against the forest background. Camera: Nikon D100 Montana's Bitteroot Valley.
