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.
Thank you... I hope that will hide better when the hunting season starts...
I think she means "hunting for mates."
What? Do they actually allow hunting up there?
It's the 21st century, for crying out loud!
Thanks Marc, really value your comment.
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 ..
Hi Larry, I was thinking to go and sit on one... but then Corax would comment that I am showing off... hahahaaha
no, I love his comments... and those magnificent animals should not be tamed... or killed...or eaten....
Thank you, for you comments...
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!
Thanks Mark. I value your opinion.
Dear Liba, you really are an artist!! This is so beautiful!
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...!
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.
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.
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)
If it would attract females and get me 40 votes
on Summitpost, I'd be wearing an Ascot, too !!!
the same comment as on Facebook (well a bit :)
I imagine from right to left : Lcarreau, FortMental, Marcsoltan and EricChu :)
Guys, you are having too much fun... and those poor elks are endagered... the hunting season will start soon...
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
