My first moose of the season from this past Saturday. Check out this cutie!
I fully expected to see plenty of these high country residents in Arapaho National Forest this past weekend and indeed I did. Mama and her little one were by far the highlight, even if they didn’t give me any particularly great poses.
They were in a pretty busy area with lots of campers and mom wasn’t too keen to linger with all those pesky humans around. Soon after I spotted her, some other two-legged folks did as well and that was enough to prompt her little one to follow and head off deep into the forest.
