This shot was taken by my friend, Shaula, who lives up the hill and got a couple of good head-on shots.
My shots are all butt-end ones... but just wait until tomorrow.
Some (other) neighbors are putting out deer corn and I'm told this big guy has been coming around a lot. I'll be out in the morning all bundled up and ready with my camera.
And here's Shaula - she, like me, was still sipping coffee when we started the phone calls flying. When I took this photo, the elk was only about twice as far from Shaula as she is from the edge of the road.
Thankfully, it did not occur to her to snap a shot of me!
