Young Bull Moose

Young Bull Moose, Chugach State Park, AlaskaYou can tell that this was a very young bull due to the size of his antlers so late in the season. Of course, it didn’t stop him from mixing it up with his much older, and larger, competition for the affection of the lone cow in the area. That said, he was more of an observer than a legitimate challenger. His time will come soon enough. But he did win the award for walking through the most picturesque patch of ground cover in Chugach State Park, Alaska the morning that I was there to photograph the action.
