Young bull elk. Taken south of Sweathouse Creek west of Victor, Montana USA in early April. He was with a small group of cow elk just hanging out. I wonder what he is thinking or looking at…
He is part of a large herd (about 100 elk) that roam this area. Sometimes they are all together, this time of year, they break into smaller groups. Soon the cows will be finding a quiet place to calve, then they will get together in larger “nursery” groups again.

    Oh, this is a nice capture Merle !!

  • Thank you Gisela. I actually took one seconds later and he stuck his tongue out. Funny, but not a very classic elk gesture if you know what I mean. I chose to post this one instead. LOL.
