A brand new Zoo baby

Jared and I popped in at the Zoo this morning and were lucky enough to see a brand new baby Elk. She must have been less than an hour old. When we got there the mom was still cleaning her off and she was trying very hard to get up on her long wobbly legs. It really was amazing to see. Unfortunately I only had my little digital camera so the pics are from quite far away, but I had to share them with you anyway.

I also took some video (again, with my small camera so a bit far). Here is the link if you want to go and have a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atOmDQC0yJo
