Springtime Elk

A good sighting today. A small herd of cow elk with one young bull. The bull was still sporting a spike antler. It will shed soon and he’ll begin growing his second set of larger antlers. They were starting to shed their winter coats and looked a bit on the shaggy side. It’s always nice to see elk and I was grateful they allowed me a peek into their world.

They have a beautiful place to call home.
