A pair of wolves killed an elk, apparently near their den. The individual pictured would take a chunk of the carcass and trot off into woods and then return. This was repeated over the course of two days. When the wolf was away, ravens picked at the carcass as seen in the second image.

Species uncommonly captured by camera traps. Uncommonly seen (but occasionally spooked from grass lairs when walking). More commonly seen as roadkill.
This pair was "swimming" in the little pond at the bottom of the medicinal herb garden. For 20 minutes or so, they moved along the water scooping algae off the sides of the pond with their beaks (perfectly shaped for algae scooping!) After these 20 minutes they hoisted themselves out of the water and waddled cautiously past me to the slightly larger pond at my back where they dunked themselves, seemingly bathing before laying down for a nap at the pool side.
When my class and I where exploring around the fields by the Montgomery High School I came across these deer bones. The bones where hidden between two bushes and behind a house that looked vacant. The bones where not complete and unattached, they where scattered throughout the place. My main curiosity why the bones where there? and What was the cause of death?
The moth was about 3 to 4 inches from tip to tip, its body was about an inch and half big. It didn't flight away when I got close to it and it was daylight, too, maybe that's why. I stepped on a broken branch then, it flew up onto my shirt. I think it is a male because of it colors.
