So I'm always looking to capture a new creature to post for you. Now I have seen many Elk in my time here in bend but have yet to have my camera with me.
So this morning as I arrived at my favorite photo spot I could hear a bull Elk calling in the distance. I thought good I have my camera I can get the shot. So I started stalking the beast.
I know this area like the back of my hand, every stick and every rock. I worked my way down wind of this great beast, then I started working towards it. Now if you have never heard an Elk call, Its a high pitched whistle. Not what you would expect to come from a beast that weights in around 800 to 1.200 pounds.
I could tell this mighty beast was about a 1,000 yards away and up the hill. So I made my way as fast and as quite as I could. As I got closer I could tell it was in a clearing just over a ridge. I crept up slowly behind a tree at the edge of the clearing, Camera at the ready. slowly moved around for the shot and..........
You ask, where is the picture?
I know what your thinking. No film in the camera...No who uses film now day's.
No memory stick then... No had a 2 gig stick in and it was empty.
Battery was dead? ... nope I had just charged it last night.
The mighty Elk ran away to fast for me to get the shot snapped..... come on you really didn't think that did you?
So why then, why is there no picture of this beast in my post.... WELL
It was 2 guy's practicing for an up coming Elk hunt....
Go figure!! Sorry readers maybe next time.
