Photo Series of the Day: Baby Elk

It was dusk, so the photos are fuzzy.  But I had the coolest experience of a baby elk wandering out of the forest, about 15 yards from me.  It was making the signature mewing call for its mother.  Two females across the field approached, and they touched noses.  But when the baby tried to come along side one to nurse, it shied away.  Not my baby!  It then turned and walked off.  I heard crashing in the bushes, so I am not worried it got orphaned.  🙂
