Rocky Mountain Elk


This week’s stunning photo was shot by Norwegian photographer Rune Gudmundsen, and it is of a Rocky Mountain elk (Cervus canadensi nelsoni). The Rocky Mountain elk is a sub species of elk (Cervus canadensi), and is found in the Rocky Mountains (hence it’s name) and areas around in western North America.

The elk is the one of the largest species of deer.
