O.K.  I have to admit, I let the cuteness bug get the best of me for some of these.  If you’re allergic to them, just speed on through.  I promise there are also plenty of amusing animal pics mixed in with a few gorgeous, exquisite shots.  If you make it safely to the videos, you must watch the amazing one of the elk herd through to the end.  I guarantee it’s worth it.
