Driving a back road in South Park a few days ago and out of the willows pops a Moose cow with calf!

I guess it is better to be lucky than good!

Did you notice the reddish hair on the little buddy's back?

There is a really good micro-brew called "Moose Drool" from Missoula, Montana.
Image
Where do you think they came up with a name like that?

Free veggies from the bottom of the pond - yummy!

You never know when you might spot a moose family - so keep your eyes open on the back roads!
...and - on the highways!

Breathtaking photos. I just had a young male on our property two weeks ago, walking thru down to the ponds at Harris Park.
They can really move! He stopped, stared at me for just a moment, and carried on. So lucky to see these beautiful creatures up here.

I have never seen moose south of RMNP. Can't wait to spot one around here. Seeing your photos is the next best thing to being there! :D

Great pics, BGR. I was driving to Lewiston yesterday and saw a bull moose walking chest deep right up the middle of the Clearwater River, just off the highway. No ops for a picture, unfortunately. It was a really odd place to see a moose.

Those are great photos. I love the Moose; they are such exquisite animals and such a wonderful experience when one can see them in the wild. I love your comments by the way...
