"Elk in Velvet"
The two prints I'm sharing today from my "Travels" collection are from Colorado. I was so excited to get this elk shot - my best so far. He's not a big guy, as far as the antlers go, but aren't they exquisite in velvet? I'll never get over how beautiful they are in the early summer.
I took this shot during my first close encounter with a raven. I honestly didn't know they were such a large bird - as big as an eagle. He sat still for just a moment before flying off into the misty woods.
