Elk Calf At Buffalo National River

Elk Calf - Buffalo National River - Arkansas

Elk Calf - Buffalo National River - Arkansas

Back in February 2009, I was at the Buffalo National River here in Arkansas photographing Elk. I spotted an Elk calf standing in a field by itself. I was able to get behind some trees in front of this calf. It walked toward me, and I was able to get several photos before it heard or saw me and stopped. I left so as not to stress the calf. I never did see any Elk around this calf.

How I Got The Shot - Elk Calf

I was using a Canon EOS 40D and a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS USM lens. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/400 of a second at f4 and the ISO at 800. White Balance was set on auto. I was using single point, continuous auto focus with evaluative metering.
