Brahma bull chases a rider he has thrown at Frontier Days Rodeo, Prescott, Arizona. Bull elk chases his lady love at Gardner's Hole in Yellowstone National Park, Wyo ming. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC photographer Blair entered the area during the fall mating season, when the male wapiti form harems and bugle challenges to rival bulls. "This female," he recalls, "ran toward the bushes where I stood. When we were almost eyeball to eyeball, she saw me and veered off. The male almost ran me down and shook 556 his head in surprise. But nothing could deter him from the chase of the cow."
