Poetry: “Old Man Resting”

Old man resting,

in a field of spring’s new growth,

tired from the season.

Strength builds,

antlers grow,

peaceful are his days.

A sad looking fellow!

“You would be sad looking as well, if you had the winter I have had.”

In a few weeks this Elk will be strong, sleek and handsome. What a gorgeous velvety rack he is growing!

Notice the beautiful yellow throat, and the yellow patches on the sides and on top of the head.

IMG_3774This little guy was flitting around from branch to branch and tree to tree, so this is the best photo I could capture of his ruby crowned head.
The header photo is a Pink-sided Junco, which was busy hunting for food in and around patches of snow. I was lucky it decided to get a better view of its surrounding by hopping up on this boulder.
It was a fun day that will be treasured always!
