Love it!

The Bachelor Elk dudes just hanging out, waiting for the rut to begin. (Then they all get to kick one another's butts...)

Neat capture, Liba.

Re: Love it!

I think she means "hunting for mates."

What? Do they actually allow hunting up there?

It's the 21st century, for crying out loud!

Symphonicity ...

I hear a symphony playing right now!

And, so will the elk when the air turns crisp, and the atmosphere is RIPE for love.

I'm lookin' for a lover,
Though I must fight my brother.
The family tree must not fall down;
This is our chance, when leaves turn brown,
And love is all around ..

Re: What ...

Hi Larry, I was thinking to go and sit on one... but then Corax would comment that I am showing off... hahahaaha

Thank you, for you comments...

Must Have Been Quite a Sight!

I recall hearing two calling out to each other while camping in the Wichita Mtns with Boy Scouts a couple years ago. Pretty awesome stuff. Thanks for sharing your excellent image!

It's surprising...

I looked at the other comments, and then I found Larry's sentence "I hear a symphony being played". I went back to the picture - and the first thing I thought of was, sure enough - Bruckner. Bruckner, not even so much Sibelius, even though it's him one associates far more with the Elk and the reindeer...Finland...This picture would make a wonderful CD-cover photo for Bruckner's 6th or 7th symphonies...!

Re: It's surprising...

A musician through and through.

I'm not a musician, but I once put the forth movement of Beethoven's 6th symphony to a burning car video that I had taken. You remember that one, it's called "Storm" or "Sturm". It was a perfect fit.

Re: It's surprising...

Hi Eric,
I am not a musician either (marc commenting on that). I don't even know Bruckner... will have to check on YOu-tube..
Thanks for your comments.

Re: It's surprising...

It's not surprising that Liba's beautiful
version of "Man-Elk of the Rockies" is an instant hit with music lovers far and wide!

(Anton Bruckner ~ 1824-1896)

Re: so I'm going to post

You're absolutely right, dear Liba...it's so sad to think that these beautiful, proud animals might soon be lying dead, with bullets in their bodies...

Haha, Erico! I don't know the other persons you saw in this picture, but to imagine Eric as one of the elks made me laugh!!! :D
