This elk definitely has a rough life…living in the mountains munching on wild flowers all day!

  1. What a wonderful captured! Seemed like you are quite close!

  2. He seems cool πŸ™‚ Great closeup and I like the two photos so you can se him munching

  3. Impressive animal…. looks like a king!

  4. Poor thing…but heΒ΄s a real beauty. Were you not you afraid om him??

  5. Wonderful photographs in all your posts! Who ever knew that chipmunks could be carnivorous? – but then not so long ago we thought Chimpanzees were totally without malice. I’m sure you’ve been told many times before but really, your shots are fabulous.

  6. Great to see big elk, enjoying lunch!

  7. Love this photograph, and all your other photo’s are beautiful to πŸ˜‰
    Thank you for your comment on my Macro Monday photo πŸ˜€

  8. Tammy….excellent portrait..hahahahahhaha

    I feel that Marina was killed…The police is using helicopter, dogs, etc…

  9. Life seems easy for him in your shots, but going on that velvet on his antlers, go back when it gets rough, during the rut, when things get reakky rough, but get a longer lens, you dob’t want to be close then! How did I miss this.

  10. He seems to think you are interesting.I’m glad you got away before he started munching on you!
    Thanks for visiting me today and leaving a kind comment. HOpe to see you again soon.

  11. He looks as if asking what you’ve got to eat, maybe some dressing for his roughage. Great shot

  12. How wonderful you get to photograph such beautiful animals in the wild. We have to go to the zoo to see one of those!

  13. Just look at that handsome fella. Great shot!

  14. What a magnificent animal! I love the way you captured him looking around at you. Makes for a much more interesting photo than just a regular side shot. How fun this must have been!

  15. Nice shot, always nice to catch one of these guys up close.

  16. Oh yeah, he definitely looks like he has it rough, lol.

  17. It’s always so exciting to see one in the wild. I like the direct eye contact that you captured.

  18. I’m having fun on this virtual vacation – I’m so glad you invited me along!

  19. As always, you are one of the BEST wildlife photographers!

  20. I’m so glad on the tech-free week that they let you keep the camera. What a shot! I think all your practice at the zoo has really paid off!
