Winter Visitors

I'm fortunate to live next to dedicated open space. We regularly see deer, elk, fox, pheasant, red-tail hawk, winter-white rabbit and moose. On a snowy Sunday recently, a mother and her daughter spent a good part of the day cavorting in our yard. I stood outside just 20 feet away from them and quietly took these images:

Moose are supposedly one of North America's most dangerous animals to humans, even more so than bears or wildcats. Getting between a mother and her calf can be a terrible thing, but on this day, Mom was not the least bit interested in me. Her daughter, however, seemed happy to pose.
