Momma was near by keeping an eye on this young elk as it frolicked along the riverside munching on this and that, and lapping at flies. I was delighted to see I was able to catch this little on in the act.
This was taken in West Yellowstone in the Madison Junction area. Unintentionally we were rather close. The initial subject was a swan on the river. Mom and this young one just walked on by as I was taking shots of the swan and a nearby eagle.
