A Tule Elk Calf Stands in Tall Grass

Tule Elk Calf, Point Reyes National Seashore

This tule elk calf is big enough to run with the adults so it no longer needs to hide for periods of time.  It was the only calf with a group of 25 adults and yearlings.  Most of the cows with calves that I’ve been seeing are staying farther away from the road than the other elk.

    Adorable little one! I was so surprised to learn last summer that the elk calves have spots when they’re born. Somehow I just didn’t expect it, but they are really cute with them.
