Once enough snow melts and the grass starts to poke through the snow on the ground, these creatures virtually swarm to enjoy a grass snack after long snowy months. This young elk was about 20 feet from my front door, looked to me to be the picture of enjoyment. Didn’t seem to mind me photographing her with a Nikon D3s and a 70-200mm, f/2.8 with a 2X teleconverter attached. Shot in Darby Montana, USA
