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.
