Getting shots like this, partly luck, mostly patience. When I seen an animal, stop, dont move, and wait. Believe they are curious and so come closer to check out whats going on. In addition animals in National Parks do not fear people as no hunting had been allowed as long as the park existed. Have many shots where deer, elk, bobcats, and other animals have come close enough to get a good shot. Caught a Marmot one time in Yosemite, spotted him and froze. He ranged back and forth coming down the hill, until he was closed enough to sniff my boot. Then he just wandered off. Have had deer and elk come within five feet, then someone coming down a trail singing and making a lot of noise scared them off. They never saw them. Nadine and I followed a Doe and her Fawn one day within 15 feet, for half a mile as they browsed along a trail. Stayed far enough away so they felt comfortable. Each time they moved further, followed them, maintaining our distance. Experience in Korea helped and taught Nadine to watch for stones, pebbles, twigs, to move silently, even controlling breathing so it is silent as possible. Had to move through mountain trails and across valleys in the dark silently on night patrols. One night we hung Christmas Cards on the Chinese barbed wire undetected. Always wondered what they thought in the morning when they found them.

It can take as long as 30 - 60 min waiting...

It is exciting--and I am still like a little kid when I see deer or elk. You look really close to him--and he seems to be watching you. I had one get really mad at me--and I have that shot. This is a great shot. Fav and Vote :)

It was a lot of fun taking these photos of the elk. My brother went with us to the Grand Canyon on this trip. Id done a lot of packing of the RV before we left, so decided to sit in Mather Campground and rest for the afternoon. My brother took off and went to the Rim. The campground was almost empty, with only about five campers in it, when a heard of about 28 Elk, began browsing through the campground. Just went and stood in a patch of bushes, leaning against a tree to remain steady moving as little as possible. They came closer and closer as they moved through the campground, several of them came within a dozen feet of where I was standing. The one with leaves in his mouth, was less than ten feet from me.

Beautiful photo! Would love to have been the one to have taken this one!!

Up Close And Personal With An Elk


Nadine and Bob Johnston


Photograph - Original Nikon Photography


Up close and personal visit from an Elk in Mather Campground, in the Grand Canyon National Park. While staying there for two weeks, several times a heard of about 28 Elk came browsing their way through the campground. Most never saw them as they had left in the early mourning to go to the South Rim or other areas of the Grand Canyon
The elk or wapiti is one of the largest species of deer in the world, and one of the largest land mammals in North America and eastern Asia. It was long believed to be a subspecies of the European red deer, but evidence from a 2004 study of the mitochondrial DNA indicates that the two are distinct species.
