The young bull moose calf who was running behind its' mother and sister has finally played out. I felt so sorry for him, he was completely winded and looked very dejected. They probably had been running at a steady pace for several miles already.

The cow moose kept a watchful eye on him.. she and the other calf stopped to wait until he got his breath back again.

Thank you Mary for the spotlight! It is much appreciated.

    The poor baby does look very tired but seems to be trying. I am glad his mother waited. A wonderful addition to this series.
