Munching Leaves

Posted by

What a treat to sit quietly and watch this female elk munching on leaves and twigs. She was an eating machine, packing on the pounds for the coming winter. There were golden aspens across the valley.

Great framing of this elk with the surrounding foliage as it munches away!! The aspens add a nice punch of color here.
