Mother’s Milk for Breakfast

One of many amazing wildlife events that we experienced on a recent trip to Glacier National Park was watching and photographing a mother moose feeding her days-old calves. The calves could barely reach the breakfast table.

We returned every morning for 3 days to watch the moose family. One morning while stretching to reach mother moose for breakfast a calf fell into the stream. The poor thing struggled to climb onto the steep bank but fell back a few times. My friend Bob was ready to jump in to lift the 25 pound calf out of the swift current. Fortunately, nature came to the rescue and the calf climbed out to safety.

I was relived that I did not have to jump in and save Bob!
