Mooselets – the sequel
Hubby moose called – I figured he had forgotten something at the store and wanted to let me know. Instead I heard a hushed voice “there’s a mama moose and twins eating dandies in the front yard.”
Oooooooh goodie! I grabbed the camera and went through the garage, opening the door very quietly. I could see hubby moose sitting in his rig in front of the neighbors house. He would wait to come into our driveway, not wanting to scare the babies off and make mama mad – thus allowing me plenty of time to shoot away.
I have a video posted on facebook for those who know how to find me there. It is too large to put here (silly word press) – so I’ll share a couple of pics. Such cute little redheads. Likely the same ones we spotted Sunday after church.
Couldn’t you just pick em up and hug em?
NO!!! Sillies! As cute as they are, they are WILDlife. We don’t mess with the wildlife. We take PICTURES, but we don’t mess with em. That can lead to disastrous situations. When I leave each morning for work I check to the right and left before exiting the garage. Many Alaskans have had to call their workplaces to say they were going to be late due to moose – or bear – in the driveway, or yard, or roadway. We have to wait until they are done doing whatever they’re doing to go about our merry way. And, trust me – these critters take their sweet time.
But, then, so do we. Remember, I live in Alaska – I make my own fun.
