The Youngsters Look Healthy

Twin Moose Calves

More good fortune. Yesterday morning shortly after sunrise I came across a moose cow with twins. Mother moose wasn’t too concerned with my presence, however, the calves were quite curious. Embedded in a aspen grove, they were not exactly in the most photographic of spots but I managed a few frames. Turns out, I got this photo and a couple of others.

Moose twins are one of the more rare events to see in the wild. It takes quite a bit of energy for a female cow to birth and raise two babies, but this cow was in pretty good shape and the youngsters look healthy.
