Do You Know What I Herd?

This was awesome to be close to, the Elk with velvet covered antlers were a sight to behold.

Showy Milkweed

This bull seemed to be one of the largest.

Plover or Killdeer
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Morning Dove
A male turkey was spreading his tail feathers, but not for the camera. 

Scurf Pea
White Pelicans
Painted Turtle


  1. Fascinating pictures this evening. The bull is amazing! I enjoyed each photo, especially the milkweed. We are under a tornado warning this evening. Hope your weather is calm and that you and your family have a good evening.

  2. Elk are pretty cocky when it comes to being in control.

  3. The herd of elk is impressive. Pelicans are a source of amazement to me. I've noticed that the flowering milkweed is plentiful this year.

  4. I don't know where you were, but you got some wonderful captures. Love, love, love the elk! The killdeer shot is perfect. The turkey may have put down his tail for the photo, but he was still sufficiently ruffled to make a beautiful image. Wonderful shots of the pelicans, too.

  5. Hi Steve - love those elks ...gorgeous to see them with their velvet on ... and those other photos - love them ... the turtle, the plover, the white pelicans ... thanks for letting us see them - cheers Hilary

  6. those elk are wonderful. and that looks like a killdeer to me. great shots of the pelicans too.

  7. That's some herd of elk. That would be an amazing experience

  8. I'm always amazed at what you capture with your camera!

  9. OMGosh, Steve. You got some incredible shots! Especially of the herd. I love the play on words:)
    Enjoy your weekend. It's currently pouring here.....again....still....

  10. So many cool animals. I almost went to see elk today, but they don't come out often.

  11. Amazing photos!!!! I wish the rain would stop here!!
