Elk Meadow, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

Nestled within a residentual community in South Jordan (Utah) is a farmer who has raised domestic elk for many years. I drove by the herd today in my daily travels and decided to take a moment and capture a few shots. It seemed so strange to be within one block of many newer homes and to be looking into the face of this fellow. The size of the herd varies, but today it seemed to be around 50 or so.

In addition to the elk, the same farmer has a herd of buffalo. I’ll have to capture some photos of them the next time I’m in their neighborhood.
