The elk horns are the ones with strappy leaves: the staghorns with the rounded leaves. The spectacle of them combined  demanded to be photographed – not once, but three times, with three different cameras, 5 minutes each. Each photo shoot yielded something different, the best being from my old camera, partly because it’s a miracle worker with close ups, and partly I suspect because the other sessions had trained my eye to notice more and more details, confirming my conviction that you photograph best what is most familiar. I’m a bit disappointed with the quality of the photos, but not with what they show.
