Not pets, but also not herps...

The field herping has come to a screeching halt here, so I haven't had anything to post in a while. I was going through some photos today, though, and I found some that I thought some of you might enjoy. The following are some of the four-legged denizens of the local area.

Fallow deer

White-tailed deer

And, lastly, my personal favorite, Rocky Mountain elk

Wish I'd gotten better shots of this last scene, but they were done almost as fast as they started. (The larger bull on the left chased the other one off in fairly short order. It was difficult trying to get them in focus.)

Hope you enjoy the photos. I know I enjoyed taking them. :D

Some serious antlers going on there on those Elk. Awesome shots.

Nice photos, thanks.
They are beautiful, like the antlers, very unique.

Absolutely stunning photos! The fallow deer are stunning. I particularly love the first pic - looks so tranquil and perfect :)
