I don't eat the apples on my trees, but the wildlife definitely does.
The elk are so loud when they are pulling back on the branches that I can often get closer to them unnoticed (not too close).
This particular elk came repeatedly all day. I have another one that seems to be nearby with the youngest elk calf I have seen yet; but I can't even get close to her to get a photo and I don't want to stress her or make her run.
It is still horribly dry, hot, and hazy out here so I am glad the fruit is starting to come in for the animals. I am watching a lot of them shred at some pretty sad looking grass.
