July 6, 2010
The past month has been pretty hectic and busy with gallery work and I find myself only getting away for brief periods of time mainly early in the mornings these past several weeks. That I have been doing. A few hours here and there for wildlife and landscape research and viewing. Most of these mornings begin with a quick stop at first light at Kathys Koffee where I arm myself with a quick picker-upperto take along. It is amazing how much the Elk calves have grown in the past several weeks. I sit at various points watching them and listening to their conversations amongst one another and to mom. Something like," Is that Gary?" "should we be concerned with his presence?" Shall we run?" Smart is the better part of valor and in no time at all they are off into the woods and safety.
Wildlife is getting harder to spot as the grass and plant life is now growing at higher elevations drawing the wildlife ever onward and upward into the high mountains as they follow both grass and melting snow.
