The time of year is approaching when moose will have their calves, which usually occurs in the latter part of May. Moose usually have twin calves, and sometimes triplets. This is a picture from the archives of a cow with a single calf, and it is most likely that the other one was lost to predation. Since the young ones are pretty vulnerable in the first few months after birth, I’ve done most of this type of photography from a vehicle or near the roadways. I took this picture in Denali National Park, and my guess is that the calf is a week or two old.
