Met an elk today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
It was a Sunday evening and as I said earlier I was sick :( As it turned out I was lucky to be sick because the others went to sauna and I thought that it wouldn't be good for me, might catch a cold after. So I put on 2 pairs of pants :), warm jumper and a jacket and headed for the forest. I only got to walk 5 minutes when I saw a big elk right in front of me in the opening of the forest that I normally visit.
He was a big fella but not the biggest, still young. I was standing behind some bushes so he didn't see me. I heard him munching on the spring leaves and branches :)
His hearing was excellent!! The ground was covered in dried leaves and as I stepped onto them to adjust my position he heard me and moved a little bit further. So I got some good elk in an environment shots also ;)
This doesn't happen every day so I was jumping up and down when he finally left! :D
