Elk Good Morning

These bull elk (the one on the right is older and bigger than the one on the left) appear to be greeting each other in the pre-dawn colors at Maxwell one wonderful morning. My older son thinks that he's the big one and his little brother is the small one. While we think elk are mountain species (and indeed this Wapiti is descended from mountain elk), 150 years ago elk roamed the Great Plains with legendary millions of bison.
