Today's morning visitors!
Here's a couple of shots of the moose family that came to visit us this morning. Both of these photos were taken by me from our deck. For awhile, I sat on the deck and talked to the bull. He wasn't too impressed; was more interested in the fresh green grass near our bluebird house, I think! Mama and baby didn't pay much attention, either; they were too busy at the salt block. After 30 minutes or so, the bull wandered off west of the house into the aspen, and a few minutes later, Mama and Baby took off in the opposite direction.
Moose in our yard are an almost daily sight this time of year, but it is odd to have a bull, a cow, and a baby all at the same time. The cows and bulls stay away from each other, for the most part, until breeding season in the fall.
Soon Mama will push last year's baby away from her in preparation for the coming of her new calf. That will happen in the next few weeks.
I hope you enjoyed the pics!
