This is so beautiful Carol. I love the snow covering everything and how it makes a natural frame for the elk who's colors and features stand out so beautifully. What a gorgeous wildlife look this is. Love it.
Merry Christmas to you and your family Carol and may the New Year find joy for you everyday. #11414570
