Cross Country

Afternoon Rest Time


Afternoon Rest Time

This shot was taken after this male elk and his cows left the camp ground area. I stayed my distance and followed him and his ladies into the forest. Waited for a while, this guy decided it was time for a rest as did one of his ladies. I first...
