Bull Elk browsing on foliage (1)

This large bull Elk is browsing on summer foliage in Jasper National Park. Note the velvet (bloodied skin) hanging off the rearmost tines of his new antlers, as he polishes and shines them in preparation for the year's mating season by rubbing them against branches.
