    Still going through the shots I took yesterday on a hike out the Tomales Point trail to see the tule elk rut, but this one stood out from the thumbnails. Here are two males trying to figure out who is stronger. We watched both of these guys get run out of a harem by a clearly larger male earlier in the day, and then after hanging out and feeding peacefully together on the edges of the group they eventually came to blows. To us, there was no clear winner of this battle.
