Wild in West Texas

Wow!  What a month seeing the critters and wildlife around here.  I went to Fort Davis a few days ago and looked out to the Elk pasture on the right, before the incline out of the pass, and saw a huge bull elk.  Luckily I had my camera with me so I turned around in the highway for the snapshot opportunity.  As I was watching him I noticed he was walking in circles and bellowing and panting.  His bones were very visible through his fur and he was very ill-looking.  I watched him for a few minutes walk in circles and behave as if disoriented and then headed into Fort Davis to call a game warden.  I figured he was either sick or about to die and needed help.

As I showed property in the Davis Mountains Resort that afternoon I drove up on a wild burro, cute as can be.  I, again, had my camera with me and snapped a few shots.

Yesterday, Heath and I ventured to Terlingua to list some property and as we were driving down a ranch road in the middle of Solitario we had a mare and little colt walk toward us in the middle of the road, almost walking up to the hood of the truck.  As I whistled out the window and jumped out of the truck with my camera they hurried off, the colt bucking and jumping around.  Great pictures with the sun setting behind them.

I love west Texas!
