Wordless Wednesday - Elk bugling

When we were in mountains, the bull elk were just beginning to gather their herds. I was happy to catch a photo of this bull elk bugling.

Thank you so much for your prayers for our daughter's family. They are so deeply appreciated.

These animals are great. So huge and powerful looking.

I don't think I'd like to have a run-in with that sized animal.

How close were you?

Great picture!

We weren't as close as it looks. We were in the car on the gravel road - and the elk was about 150 feet away. By using my closeup lens, it looks like I was really close.
They are beautiful animals.
I love elk watching - never get tired of it, or of taking photos of these magnificent creatures.
