It’s clear that I love watching these magnificent animals. There is something almost regal about them. However, they don’t know how to pose and I don’t know how to be steady and when to click. I am hopeful I will get better over time, and for now, this I the best I have to offer. (They don’t turn around and say “cheese”.)
You might notice the horns are not very big. This time of year, the big bulls gather up and hang together. They have been moving around a lot and this last week we have lost track of them. It could be that they are long gone. They often move over 80 miles a day. It could just be they are right over the hill.
This is a spike elk, a young bull and they hand with the cows (female elk).
