A herd of resident Roosevelt Elk settled in for the evening at the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge in Corvallis, Oregon. All were at peace in the verdant calm of expansive pasture land.
For a moment, curious eyes gazed toward the edge of an Oregon Ash tree forest where a Red-tailed Hawk noisily beckoned for dinner with determined screeches.
In contrast, the elk were content. Dozens of animals satiated as they feasted in silence upon abundant grassy cuisine.
Note- Silence is not always the case for Roosevelt Elk on this National Wildlife Refuge. During a short portion of the year, the refuge is open by special permit for a limited hunting season.
In my opinion, shooting with a camera is the only way to take Wildlife home.
