Today is a glorious summer day - with sunshine and flowers.
My trail camera showed some of our young wildlife moving around. The next photo is the yearling moose calf who has acted as if he's been confused for the past few weeks. I could put together an entire video showing his travels. He keeps walking east for miles and miles. Then, for some reason, he makes a U-turn and comes right back to where his mom raised him last winter.
I will make that video sometime soon. It's so cool to have this guy in our forest. He's been staying well hidden from people. And, when I've glimpsed him, he quickly runs into the cover of the forest. He should move on at some point - finding his own territory. However, I'm starting to wonder if all the attractive moose territory near us is already taken by other moose.
Here was another young animal who came out of hiding the other day. Look how small that fawn is.
The fawn sniffed around the area, probably smelling some other animals, like moose and mountain lions, for the first time in his short life.
I adore this time of year - seeing the young animals who are so cute, and enjoying Nature's beauty which almost overwhelms me.
