Moose


there they were
dining in the lake


heads bowed
below the surface of the water


eating lake bottom plants
in the evening light


a dear 
and 
touching sight


the calf stayed near
its mom


as she ate
for hours


alert to every sound
~

such an honor to sit at the forests edge
to be near them

  15. What great photos, Tammie. So many moose! That youngster looks like a spring baby. My neighbors have spotted a moose in my yard at dusk. I've found the dung and gnaw marks on aspens but so far I haven't seen it.

    1. Hi Barb,

      My neighbor saw a moose and her calf in his pond today! I have not seen them though. So fun!
