I was buying a souvenir hat at a roadside outfitter when I learned that a herd of elk was grazing just behind it. I ran out of the store and into this shot. The two elk are juxtaposed in space as if they were linked, one incongruously merging out of the other. Mergers are usually disruptive, but this one makes one elk out of two. It reminds me of the Pushmi-pullyu, a fictional antelope in Hugh Lofting’s book, “The Voyages of Doctor Doolittle.” The Pushmi-pullyu has two heads at opposite ends of its body, and when it tries to move, both heads try to go in opposite directions.
