Male elk bugling during the fall rut. Large male elk are known as bulls. Male elk have large antlers which are shed each year. Male elk engage in competitive mating behaviors during the rut, including posturing, antler wrestling and bugling, a loud series of screams which is intended to establish dominance over other males and attract females.

Grand Prismatic Spring (left) and Excelsior Geyser (right).  Grand Prismatic Spring displays a stunning rainbow of colors created by species of thermophilac (heat-loving) bacteria that thrive in narrow temperature ranges.  The blue water in the center is too hot to support any bacterial life, while the outer orange rings are the coolest water.

New Blue Spring is among the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces in the northwestern part of Yellowstone National Park. The travertine terraces are deposits of calcium carbonate, formed when limestone underneath the terraces is dissolved by mildly acidic heated groundwater, raised to the surface by the hot springs and solidifies there when it is exposed to air. During periods of high flow, individual terracettes can grow rapidly, as much as 8 inches per year.
