200-500 Captures Elk Calf and Mom
7

Cow and calf elk pause during their morning graze to look to the east and the rising sun on a fine summer morning

With the arrival in earnest of the summer monsoon two weeks ago, northern Arizona has been treated to daily thunderstorm activity which is refreshing the area aquifers and greening the Lower Lake Mary meadow. Elk and pronghorn graze the meadow, every morning, and return at sunset for a late day snack.

This pair came close enough for a photo op during their sunrise forage. I used a Nikon D500 and Nikkor 200-500 to make this portrait.
