A bull elk rests after a long morning of bugling and sparring with other bulls. Apparently he was victorious as a dozen or so cow elk grazed contently nearby.

This picture was originally posted in a test journal which was a trial attempt to update this photo blog. It didn't come out the way I had hoped (individual pages have an archieve column which throws off the setting of the photos and drops them to the bottom of the page), but I really REALLY liked the photos on the black back ground. Enter global photo community aminus3. I have been posting there since the end of March on my site "Colorado At The Speed Of Life". I invite you to take a peek there. You'll see some of my old favorites, and maybe a few new ones as well. I shall still keep this blog going because this is my home, my family and friend, but I really enjoy the interaction with the new global photo community. Check out the Community link while you're there. Photographers can feature a new photograph every day and some are just out of this world!
