Spied this Elk from a distance in the Bison Range.Looks like he might have spied me too.
Oh my!What an experience.I love the way it looks over his shoulder at you and then calmly goes back to drinking.What wonderful shots Lisa.How I envy you the moment.
Nice photos... sneaky beaky. You must have been well concealed or up wind.
Wow! I've never met wild elks! I'm envying you too.
Wow! What a wonderful and rare opportunity! He didn't even seem to mind! :-)
What a wonderful series. He doesn't seem to be bothered by you at all.
How cool! It's rare to see good images of elk in a stream / river. Very well done at taking advantage of a fleeting moment.
Wow, those are gorgeous! My dad used to go on hunting trips every year for elk (blech!) We had something hanging in our garage, I'm not sure if it was an elk or deer head, you'd have to ask my mom.p.s. I scrapped koehmstedt and am now blogging over at carrieloves. Come see me and help spread the word :o)
My goodness, that second image of the elk is absolutely breathtaking! It has all the makings of a masterful painting ... and is glorious in its own right as a photo. Congrats on your successful photo hunt, you've brought back the big one!
Fabulous natural shots. Isn't he beautiful?
Nice shots! It looks like he has spied you too. I love the colors.
my husband is drooling over these shots!
Seeing this series, I want to go to our local elk range and find a gorgeous bull to phoyograph myself! Thanks for sharing. :)
