I should have mentioned the antlers are in velvet. How many of you envisioned an Elvis-like painting? I am still looking for the large bulls that I know are there. But, this youngster presented himself in a nice setting so I settled for these shots for now.

Very cool...! :smile:

But I still want Elvis on velvet...! :tongue:
Thanks, William. Maybe I shouldn't admit to this, but I actually have one on the wall in view of my computer. It was a gift years ago from my late brother.
Fortunate capture! But what a ratty looking guy, poor thing is molting big time.
You are correct. Not looking their best yet. Our screwy weather has the timing of many living things messed up this year.

That really is a nice setting. And the elk will look a lot better in a couple of weeks after shedding :biggrin:
