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

“On an October afternoon during the elk rut, this calf walked up on a ridge to get a better view to observe its surroundings,” explains Putney. “It stopped and posed in a good spot that worked well compositionally as it scanned the area.”
