Nice capture, Lyle. He is beautiful. Love how he is looking at you. He does look like he wonders where his food is. #1494787

Description

Close up of a bull elk's face. The elk is a captive one as the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation raised some elk. It was my job to feed them for the tourist to watch, so the elk got used to me. We would feed them pellets and some of the elk would eat out of my hand. I would put a pellet in my mouth and the big bull would come up to me and take the pellet out of my mouth. This guy is wondering where the pellet is.

Adjusted in PSE7.
