I saw this and didn't even realize it was yours, Leslie; it is so different from your usual. Looks like you and Durward had a great trip, and I'm glad you brought back so many neat captures! Turkeys and bears and elk, oh my!

Congrats on the AC!

The angle of the mother's head makes her look very maternal.

Thank you Kat and you are right, we didn't know either. Much to our surprise it was a beautiful herd in a beautiful setting. I took so many photos of them all so thrilling (it was amazing to stand with them in the valley). The mountains hold many treasures that we have to seek out. It was a little difficult to get to but well worth the drive!

Fantastic, Leslie! How cool to get the whole
family. I must admit, I never thought of North
Carolina as somewhere that had elk. I'm glad they
do and that you were there to catch this shot!
