Curious

The two young elk were more curious than concerned when they noticed me on the first Sunday in August. They were having a quiet moment by a tree in the corner of the field near the road.

There are at least 5 elk in the park. I have seen 2 males and 3 females. There might be more. They don’t stay together like the bison do. The older male has an impressive set of antlers. He hasn’t been near enough for a photograph yet.
