Was headed west on the road, with a storm coming in my direction. I was hoping light would break through the heavy clouds, creating an opportunity for photos. I came around a turn and there on the right were four large male elk. They were on the move, perhaps to a safe spot from the heavy wind that was pushing through the valley and rain drops that were starting to fall. Each season I find it interesting, seeing at this time bull elk together as if they were best of friends. Only within weeks the velvet well be coming off the antlers and rutting season will begin. For now its the safety of numbers and taking in the rich food provided by all the rain we received this summer. For this picture, I got well ahead of the elks and used my zoom lens to get this close up of two of the four elk.

Until next moment,
