I spotted this little guy running across a large field all by itself late last night. I followed him to this pond – the poor guy was crying non-stop – probably a good way to attract predators. I talked softly to it, and it turned around and began approaching me! This wouldn’t be a good time to have its mom come along, but it was a cool moment. It came up to spot just a bit closer then the right hand bottom corner of this image before turning around and disappearing into the thick forest.
Ten minutes later I spotted a cow moose about a quarter mile away running around frantically – presumably its mother. It disappeared into the same stretch of forest as the calf – hopefully they reunited, but I never did spot either one before night fall.
