A bull elk in Rocky Mountain National Park takes note of the funny looking guy with a camera. 😉 Truly a handsome animal. Hoping to get back up there this weekend and see them again.
“Really? Pictures while I am eating breakfast?” This handsome bull elk was munching on some grass in Rocky Mountain National Park this past Saturday. Without a harem along, he was quite calm and more than willing to pose – even if that meant I was interrupting his meal. 😉
Getting wildlife to cooperate to get the ‘perfect shot’ is a losing battle. I was reminded of this lesson while taking pictures of elk in Rocky Mountain National Park yesterday.
Colorado’s most popular national park never disappoints with its abundance of scenery and wildlife. From sprawling mountain landscapes with 14ers to creatures big and small, all can be seen.
On this day I came across a small herd of elk grazing in a meadow. Staying a safe distance away, I started snapping some pictures and they looked at me curiously. Well, almost all of them did.
One of the five insisted on looking the opposite direction, never looking my way and preventing me from getting the picture I thought I wanted. In the end though, I kind of like the image.
It showcases how even in the animal kingdom, there is at least one that just doesn’t get it. 😉
