Elk At The Golf Course

Elk At The Golf Course

Elk At The Golf Course

This time of year (November) in Colorado is close to mating season, so these elk are out grazing in all sorts of urban places. I found a large group on a golf course interrupting the players on this uncharacteristically mild afternoon. And, the peace between human and animal is striking and strong in this city.

I shot this from behind a fence handheld after rushing close to them from a roadside roadside vantage. Acting fast, and with a little bit of luck, I was able to get a reasonable look at these beautiful animals in a place you might not expect to see them. I invite you to see the image in full resolution here.
