Talking about the whole trip I may say that it was the very exciting one and much interesting was seen. And on the back way to Moscow I and Mary,my sister both accidentally saw three huge elks eating young bark from the trees in the little birch grove which grew just opposite the rode. They were scarcely visible in the thickening dusk but I could perfectly see their shapes. We stopped the car and tried to get closer to the wild animals and I may say it was a rather dangerous idea. But those beasts seemed not wanted to face any people and the stop of the car also forced them to hide farther in the forest. As I observed them moving away: legs up to the heeps stuck into snow, young hatchlings of the antlers however not so wide as they would be in the late spring\ early summer time during the mating season the idea that every second minute they would rush at us didn't leave me away. However I still managed to take a pic of them and here it is. The other thing that amazed me was how they managed to live in the place they were pasturing.
Elks were all extirpated in the vicinity and the only one place they are kept in safety is the National Elks park.Maybe they managed to run somehow from the forest reserve?

He looked unshaved and all stained with oil s
