When I first started toying with a caption for this picture, I came up with: “Joy: having friends for breakfast.” It’s amazing how swapping a couple words and changing their order can alter the intended meaning of an idea. Hannibal Lecter no doubt would’ve found joy in having friends for breakfast, but I don’t intend to try it… I’m pretty sure I’d prefer to dine with friends rather than on them 🙂
The elk in the photo above actually crossed the road in front of us. One dashed across first, which stopped traffic (us and 2 other cars) and the other two followed soon after. I need more practice photographing living subjects; they usually run away before I find an angle I like. This time, I snapped pictures even though I had glare from the sun. Three pictures in, the elk got annoyed and moved behind a rock wall. At least they were slower than my older son… he blocks his face before I can even get one shot!
The following photo doesn’t have anything to do with this post, and I can’t imagine what kind of post I’d write where I could use it. I wanted to share it anyway because for some reason, I like it.
