Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Lunching Elk

Elk at Lunch
I don't do wild animal shots very often. Mainly because I don't have a long enough zoom to do it safely, and a lack of interest in birds (sorry +Chuq Von Rospach). So my requirements for taking animal shots are slow to non-moving subjects that don't spook easily with humans around. For day 4 of the nature photography challenge (shared with me by Chuq) I came across a herd of elk lounging and having lunch.
