Now that I am nearing the end of my latest Shenandoah and Benezette photographs, I figured I'd post just a couple more of the bull that was hanging around Fred the two days we were there as he was wonderful to observe and quite photogenic as well! One fun aspect of wildlife photography is catching the animal doing what it does naturally, such as grooming. People are used to seeing their pets in the position of the first photo, but most will never see an elk that way. The second photograph is a perfect example of what life for the residents of Elk Range is like... you just never know when and where you might find elk! We even saw a couple cows resting one a porch in Medix Run (although I think the owners of the house welcome it) but it was amusing to see them lying next to the porch swing watching the cars go by.
