I am wondering: did you use a long lens to get these beauties? It's very well done.

I walked up slowly, but most of the animals around Yellowstone seem to be accustomed to humans.

I was looking for the super long lens with the foreshortened foreground and didn't see that.

I do believe the animals in Yellowstone know they're protected, and accustomed to humans.

I heard the splashing as the elk waded out into the lake, and smelled the water, grass and pines. I could feel a chill in the air as I watched the clouds kiss the hilltop in the distance. It made me feel like a kid again.

This is a great scene. It really is.

Thanks for this.

I will always associate elk with Yellowstone. When my husband and I visited the park in September 2018, there were elk all over the place. Leaving the park late one night, a big handsome bull elk crossed the road just a few feet in front in front of our car and paused for a moment to look at us like "What ARE YOU doing here?" (We were moving very slowly at the time, thank goodness.) Good times!
