On my walk today

June 4, 2012

I was taking a close up photo of this

Castilleja miniata

 

 

I turned to get a photo from another angle and looked right at this

I believe this young one is an elk calf.  There were many elk prints and other signs in the area.   It was trying very hard to be invisible (difficult for the size!)  and I was stumbling around the area for about 5 mi. taking photos and didn’t see it!

      Yes it was a bit dream like – I couldn’t believe my eyes and that I had missed it when I first walked past!

    Such a cute little critter! Lucky you didn’t see momma. She might not have been happy about your proximity.

    He does look like he’s trying very hard to be as small as possible. How cute! Thanks for sharing the photo.
