What a lovely scenery...again a great shot, Larry!!!Best off!
I was at the right place at the right time.
Best regards, Larry
How beautiful, people should look at it in big size. Great photo, Larry! I love, beside the deer of course, the sun caught in the trees. Liebi Grüess, May
I am happy you like this one. The elk showed up just in time for the late day light.
The elk, or wapiti (Cervus canadensis), is one of the largest species of deer the world and one of the largest mammals in North America with the exception of the moose (Alces alces). The wapiti is only called elk in North America and the moose is only called an elk in Europe; so much for common names. (We do not have any "moose" here on the Olympic Peninsula.)

Danke vilmal, Larry! I never knew to differentiate them by their names. :) Liebi Grüess, May
Locally the names work fine, but it can get confusing when talking with people from other parts of the world.
Happy Earth Day!
Such an amazing backdrop for a spectacular herd of Elk. Great Photo!
