Out of the Mouth of Babes

Bull Elk

On a beautiful fall day, we took three grandkids, ages 10, 7 and 2, to a safari park, where you drive through the wildlife in their “natural” habitat.  The wildlife get used to seeing humans in cars so they are unconcerned about your presence, but aren’t tame enough to come up to your car and mooch handouts.   The kids were excited to see the magnificent elk so close, sunning themselves on the hillside.  This particular elk was “shot” with a 300 mm telephoto lens from about 200 feet. 

As we rounded the bend two elk were on the side of the road doing what elk do in mating season.  The seven year old says, “Well, look at this. Papa, get a picture of THAT!”

Thought for the day:  Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the internet and they won’t bother you for weeks.
