Elk at the Lee G Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari in Ashland, Nebraska. This is rutting season and so we couldn’t stop the car and I had to get a shot while we were driving by. They’re very territorial and dangerous at this time of year. Last year, they were okay–because we could stop and take pictures. Note this year, it was much colder and the ponds were frozen.
This is a picture I took last year.
But the keeper said that they have a lot of wild young bad boy bucks this year. 🙂 So many things had changed this year from last, and I think it was because the temperatures had dropped so drastically. It was 11 degrees on Sunday morning, with a chill factor of 1 degree. We’re having 70 here today, so being in that cold of weather when you’re not used to it is COLD. 🙂
If I were this bear, note the snow on the ground, I would be hibernating. Which I sort of am. I’m in my cave, trying to finish up edits on A Hero of a Highland Wolf and A Highland Wolf Christmas.
I’m excited my roadrunner is still here!
But I’m confused about one thing–it’s just Tuesday, right? My neighbors put out their trash and they don’t pick up until Wednesday. It is Tuesday today, right???
Back to work on the two books. Brought out my notes for Jaguar Pride as that’s the next book I need to write. 🙂
Do you have your tree up yet??? I still need to do that, but because of deadlines, I think it might be the latest I ever put up my decorations.
