Eurasian Elk with Calf
It was almost dark, so I had to use flash! But I’m very happy to see this Elk Mother with her baby Calf. So very cute to see this in real life, speak-less, hold my breath and forgot almost to click!
The moose (North America) or Eurasian elk (Europe) (Alces alces) is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a “twig-like” configuration. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates.
