Mama moose become quite concerned as the calf got into some deep water and started bleeting.
She worked closer to the calf and turned toward me with the calf coming behind her. I slipped behind some pines to watch and photograph the action.
After the calf was in shallower water, the cow decided it was time to drink and eat. I found it interesting that she would drink and then eat.
With her mouth full of moss, she would let the water drain out. I wondered why she did not eat and drink at the same time.
They finally made it to shore, gave me a parting glance and headed into the thick willows.
A floatila of floaters were then able to float on down the river, not having to worry about an angry mother protecting her baby.
Just another few moments experiencing the wildness of Idaho.
