Photo Finish Friday: Elk


And there were two more in the bush.


Have a good weekend all!

PFF is the creation of my cousin Leah over at The Goat's Lunch Pail.

That's great. I'd love to see one up close. Terrific pics, Reb.

Leah J. Utas said...

Good elk pics, Cousin.

messymimi said...

Amazing that the one would come so close. Thanks for the pics.

Reb said...

David they are amazing. Just don't get too close!

Thanks Leah.

Messymimi, they are quite accustomed to traffic and paparazzi. You see though that I didn't get too close, they are still wild animals and will charge if you get too close.

Yes, the dark-clothed human at the side of the road is closer than I'd want to be.

I love how everyone pulled over for a meet and greet
great shots Reb

the Bag Lady said...

Great pictures, sis! I, too, would be hesitant to be that close to one of those critters.

Reb said...

Mary Anne, I thought so too. There are always some people that get too close and get injured.

Dianne, that is how you know there is a reason to pull over when driving through the mountains :) I don't imagine the long haul drivers like it very much though.

Sis, you and me both! As you can tell, I was much further away, I don't run very fast with the cane ;)

Wow, elk! We don't get those where I live so it's a treat to see them--great shots, and thanks for sharing!

Hilary said...

Fabulous creatures. Lucky you. I'm glad you shared because I don't know if I'll ever see anything like this in person. Wonderful photos, Reb.

Travis Erwin said...

Boy am I ever sad I missed my mountain trip this year.

Reb said...

Well, Crabby, you will just have to come and visit Alberta!

Hilary, you and Frank are just going to have to come and visit!

Travis, I can imagine!

Stopping by Reb! Great photos, I'm trying to get back into the swing of blogging... I've missed it.

Reb said...

AJ, thanks and welcome back.

The best thing about going to the mountains are the animals. Great captures, Reb.
