Default Arizona Elk

It was on the way to a hike in the mountains that we spotted this female elk on the side of the road in the early morning hours.


Surprisingly instead of running, she turned to look at me taking her picture.


Then she focused her gaze across the street at something.


After all, a mother's first concern is her kid.


We were still reeling in the good-fortune to have had such a close encounter with elk, when we spotted this bull elk moseying between some park maintenance vehicles. Notice the height of its antlers with respect to the bed of the dump truck.


This is one big animal. Much to my amazement, instead of running away, he continued walking towards me and came within 10'. These pictures are taken with a wide-angle lens!




Then he strolled nonchalantly past the car...


and started eating a tree.


The end.

Oh kdog, I'm so jealous! What I would do to be so up close and personal to the wild animals like you have been. Maybe their posing for you is sending a message? Nice butt shot BTW, even if it is rated R!

I Have just finished viewing everyone of the pics on this thread. I am so amazed at the range of critters, and the excellent shots. I should be ashamed to post my pitiful offerings...but I am going to, anyway...

The first is a digital pic that I took of a film pic of an armadillo in our front yard:



Next is a Whitetail buck in our backyard:



His 'wife' in our old garden spot:



Some of his offspring:




A chipmunk up my Gingko tree:



A nice big garden spider, with her dinner:



Okay, that is enough for now.

Marian

kdog, here I thought I was crazy for shooting gators with a wide angle. Looks like I don't have the sole claim to crazy unless you cheated and shot from the safety of your vehicle??? Fess up...
