Ah early mornings and the surprises that come with them. As we get past the entrance of the park we find ourselves yet again driving along the Madison River. The early morning brings the frost from the previous night, normally it creates great crusty clumps on the Bison fur but it also does wonders for the elk. We have seen a group of five cows every morning for the last two weeks along the Madison. This particular morning we worked them for a little while as they munched their way along.
The cows had their heads and backs covered in a nice coat of frost. Hand holding the 200-400 it was an easy clean shot that started the morning off.
