Such a precious, curious little one that I came across near Rocky Mountain National Park back on the 24th of July.
It and mama were hanging out just outside the west entrance to the park, grazing on willows. The young one was more interested in me than eating though. Mom soon decided she wasn’t comfortable with the human presence and chased the calf into the forest and away from prying eyes.
While I refer to the calf as ‘little’ it really was anything but. Even at only a couple months old, it was already standing nearly 4 feet tall.
