One of our neighbors told us the game farm on the Fairfield Bench had some white elk. We had to go see for ourselves if this was true. As you can see from the photo, the elk do exist. I had never seen this species before, so capturing an image of this cow elk, was a thrill.
I was inspired by her alert ways, she was the “watch dog” for the herd, and she was doing a good job! I also loved the coloring, or lack of it, on this elk.
