The first graders

Youth_1

These kids made it through kindergarten and are now on to first grade. Elk and mule deer that were only Fawns and calves just a short time ago are heading into winter as the first snows have hit the ground.

A young mule deer wondering what this white stuff is all about.

An elk calf ponders their next move just a short time ago when the plants still were rich with green.

Youth_4

Perhaps a few leaves from this wild rose will do.

Youth_5

Good luck kids and we hope you make it to second grade next spring.

 

Happy weekend to all.

River Crossing

Photographing wildlife from a moving kayak is fun but the results are always uncertain due to the movement of the river and the subject. Luck happened to be on our side as we watched this elk in Grand Teton National Park.
