Evening on the Madison

The elk in southwest Montana are benefiting from the mild winter this year.  On my drive home this evening, nearly a hundred elk were grazing in the late day sunshine along the Madison River.  Only a few antlered bulls were visible in the herd; none with very large racks.  With the temperature near forty degrees, only a slight breeze, and ample feed and water, these wapiti were really enjoying life!

  2. Wow, they’re beautiful! I really like the picture with all of the cows staring at something.

    • It is funny that different cows seemed to be concentrated on staring at different subjects, or sounds!
