North American Elk
This is an elk calf, he's only a few days old.
Instinct tells him to hide and hold still to be safe.
He did as instinct directed him to do. He did not
move except a little twitch of one ear and his
breathing got faster when we got close.
Took a few photos and left him alone.
If you are wondering,
this is a wild elk, not a zoo photo.
