Our photo of the day comes from Benezette, Pennsylvania. What a handsome fellow. This gorgeous photo was taken by Richard Liebert in Benezette, Pennsylvania. According to PennLive, the area is one of the best places to view the bull elks during bugling season, in which bulls woo the females during the autumn "rut.” Elk and Cameron Counties make up “Elk Country,” where Pennsylvania’s wild elk herd numbers nearly 1,000. Happy bugling, boys! Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day? Join TreeHugger’s Reader Photo Pool on Flickr and add your pictures to the group.
