I came upon this pretty female elk grazing in a meadow in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.  As I focused the camera, she looked right at me and smacked.  Then, almost as if she realized I had captured her in an inelegant moment, she quickly struck a more serious pose -- protruding grass stems and all.

Hello! I am a painter and have been for over 62 years. I love it probably like you love taking photos. You have some pictures of Elk at Estes Park that I would really love to use as reference material for a painting. I don't like to use peoples work without asking. Is it possible to do that? I have several other photographers who work with me now and its so gracious of them. My email is If you want to see some of my work, its Would love to play show and tell. I love your work!
