Photo Of The Day By Gene Putney

Photo By Gene Putney

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Feels Good!” by Gene Putney. Location: Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

“On a late June afternoon, I came across some Rocky Mountain cow elk with calves,” explains Putney. “They were bedded down in the treeline resting. I waited for them to hopefully get up to eat before last light for some photo opportunities. They finally accommodated me and when this calf first got up from its afternoon slumber it immediately started to do some stretching exercises. This image is one of my favorites from that afternoon.”
