The Wapiti Elk seemed, if not tame, used to people around them. As long as you did not disturb them you could photograph and study them. It was a great moment, the last day, when we spotted them as silhouettes on the top of a hill.

Happy New Year!

  1. Hello, wonderful elk photos. I love the silhouette shots, well done! I wish you all the best in 2018, Happy New Year. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. I Have appreciated all your visits and comments on my blog in 2017. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Wonderful shots of the Yellowstone elk!

  3. You're right - the silhouette shots are very special. I also like the one where it appears that the make elk is keeping close watch in his harem while they take a break! Happy New Year to you!

  4. Wonderful shots! The silhouette really is splendid. It's been a while since I visited Yellowstone...due to the crowds, but maybe it's time to just go anyway! I enjoyed watching elk in Rocky Mountain NP this past fall...really a treat.
