I Heart Faces

I heart elk faces this week!

It's animal week at I Heart Faces, and since I sadly have no pets at home, this dame from the Rocky Mountains will make a great stand-in.  We turned a corner on an early morning hike and bam! there she was.  I snapped a couple of shots very quickly and we tip-toed by her so not to disturb.

I would have a heart attack if I came across something like this on one of my hikes! YIKES! But what a great shot! And I totally want to go to the Rockies! Hoping to get out there before the year is over.

The look on his face made me smile :) Face to face though, I'm not sure I'd still be smiling!

I have a feeling that this will be the only elk entry;). Nice shot, Emily!
