Just enough snow has melted for brown grass to show through. This also happens to be just enough for elk to wander into my front yard and have a little snack. This young lady spotted a little grass and decided to make an athletic move to get a head start on her brothers and sisters. I have been waiting for a very long time to catch an elk jumping towards me as opposed to running away from me. Shot with a Nikon D3s, 70-200mm, f/2.8, using a 2X teleconverter. Processed in Photoshop CS6. Shot in Darby Montana, USA.
