We've been seeing our elk herd regularly recently.
I like to see them in the afternoon when the light is golden.
Some just ignore me and keep on munching on the dry grass. The younger ones are more prone to stop eating to check me out like the one on the far right.
Many males still have their antlers but I bet that they'll drop them soon. I've thought about training Shyla to show me where antlers are because I know that our herd drops them in our neck of the woods.
One day, I saw the herd while I was riding my bike. They were jittery. First they stared.
Then one stuck her tongue out as they departed.
My last view of the herd was their rumps disappearing over a rocky embankment. Notice how their ears were rotated 180° listening behind them to make sure that I wasn't chasing them.
