You Can't See Me!
Yes, I can! Peekaboo! These little elk babies are growing so fast! They wander out and about quite a bit these days, but when they're not actively on the move, they still like to "hide" in the grass. They're not quite as good at it as they used to be!
I mean, don't get me wrong, if you don't know they're there, they would still be easy to miss, but I see one... two... three babies hiding in the grass.
Honestly, if it's weren't for the flies, it might be harder to find them, but those darn pests have been horrific this year! The babies put their heads down and disappear and then have to bring them up again a moment later to shake the flies off. I've been trying all kinds of crazy things trying to control the biting fly population. Nothing has put a dent in the population yet. Poor things!
The babies are so fun to watch. Sometimes, they make it a bit hard to get my work done because I just like to sit out there and talk to them. At them? :-)
But, I mean, really! Can you blame me? Who wouldn't want to hang out with a cutie like this?
