Merry Christmas… with a Dancing Elk
We enjoyed a great Christmas day around our home today. Outside, the sun was bright, the sky was blue and the snow draped everything in a blanket of white. Inside, we played games, built toys, laughed a lot and had a really good time.
I showed my family this video embedded above of a dancing elk that I had taken a couple of winters ago up in Jasper. My mom thought that would be a good one to share online today – the kids agreed so I worked on that this evening (and here is the Youtube link as well). It was a fun encounter with a young female elk who separated from her herd for a few minutes. At several points, she broke into a dance, or rodeo bull impersonation, while I watched.
I hope you and yours have enjoyed a merry Christmas and I wish you all the best throughout the holidays.

Looks like that cow elk is picking up on the scent of a prime bull elk…fascinating to watch…must be a late rut. Beautiful to watch her.

Well she’s a feisty l’il gal, enjoyed hearing her bleat at the beginning and watching her antics with nose up in the air-quite entertaining.
