Hey, in the second picture, what is in the back ground? Are they white deer? or something else. Because we have white deer here! I can't tell from your picture.

Shelley,
What gorgeous lighting you found while photographing these wonderful creatures! Wonderful shots and I love those rich browns and siennas you managed to capture with your camera! How close were you? Great quote too!

great photos, we are seeing more and more deer now, and we live in the city. we have patches of woods around us, not deep or dense at all but at night its very normal to see more than 8 grazing.

Ah elk! I remember as a boy when they were reintroduced. I imply from your post, that the herd is doing well. Thanks for the update.

It is good to see some photographs of Michigan's elk herd. Like the other reader I am curious as to what the white animals are in one photo.

I have read that Michigan and Pennsylvania have co-operated closely in exchanging information, etc. on the elk restoration efforts.
