Pumpkin Eaters

With Halloween over, it was time to get rid of our old jack-o-lanterns.  Rather than throw them into the trash, I put them out next to the house for the wildlife.  Well, actually, I had fun tossing them up as high as I could and watching them splat down, breaking into pieces in the process.  Guess I can understand why teen aged vandals get so much pleasure from smashing pumpkins.

Anyhow, much to my surprise, a couple of bull elk came by within hours to feast on this autumn pumpkin buffet.  They hadn't finished eating when several deer joined the feast.  Made for some great fun watching from both indoors and outdoors.
