Sometimes even during the peak of the Elk Rut there are quiet moments of waiting and reflection. This was the case recently as my wife and I sat quietly waiting for a herd of elk to emerge into our view. Mid morning the elk leave the fields and head to the trees where they spend most of the day. We knew it would just be a matter of time and the quiet forest would be filled with the sounds of stomping hooves, bugling and yelping. This is a sound that just gets our blood flowing and peaks our senses. As we sat we were noticing all the beautiful silk webs laden with the morning dew. I definitely didn't have the right lens for this but I still couldn't resist firing off a few shots in hope of capturing this beauty. I hope you enjoy these images.
The image below is just a small enlargement of the web above just to show the droplets of dew.
