Elk Profile

I remember when I used to visit my husband’s folks in Morman Lake, AZ.  They would be all excited to share ‘their’ elk with us.  With a binoculars in hand, if you squinted real hard, you could see the little dots of elk crossing in front of the fire house, about 1/4 mile away.

John’s mom still remembers fondly how close they got to see the elk.  I laugh.

If she had any idea of how close we see the elk today!

Eagle Perch

Speaking of birds…  driving past Morman Lake, I spied this regal guy sitting on a branch watching the world go by.  I actually didn’t have my big camera with me.  I had my little point and shoot, Panasonic Lumix handy though.  That’ll teach me to bring my big camera along, so I don’t miss any such opportunities.
