Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer


Just got back off my Yellowstone road trip and found this week’s challenge.  It was a little surprise as I’ve spent a good deal of time in the last several days in snow storms and pretty cold weather.  As you might guess, I was up there to try to get some photos of the wide variety of wildlife within that gorgeous park.  One of the frequent sightings are elk -either in groups or by themselves.  I chose to use this shot for the challenge as it shows a pretty good view of this elk who was resting by one of the beautiful Yellowstone rivers.  Why is this appropriate for the challenge?  If you look at its fur, you can see that it is shedding its thick winter coat to get ready for…..Summer.

Changing Outfits for the Summer!

I’ll have a lot more about the trip later (as well as many more photos) but wanted to get my entry in.
