|Bull Elk With Antlers: March 30, 2011|
The bottom line was that although I have been shooting HD since 2007, I had no HD footage of this particular event, so I traveled to elk country this past week with two major goals in mind. First I wanted to film bulls that had already shed their antlers and started growing new ones, and secondly I wanted to film either a bull with two pedicels showing no growth, or one with one antler shed and one still present. Still photography was to be secondary and attempted only after the video footage was taken. On Wednesday morning I finally succeeded in filming both, but only bulls with both antlers still intact lingered long enough for still photos, so the ones depicting the shedding are still captures from the XL-H1 video camera.
