Lazy Dayz of January

The ladies were lounging on the hill this morning.

The elk calves are almost hard to distinguish from the adults now.  Their coloring is the same but you can tell they are smaller when right next to an adult.  I think their fur looks fluffier too.

Elk are similar to cattle in that they chew their cud as a part of digestion.  I’m always happy to see Alllie.  I wonder if I studied them longer if I would start to see some distinguishing marks?  We haven’t seen the bull lately so maybe he didn’t survive the hunt.  Time will tell.
