I know it's not the best shot, but I was very rushed. It was surprising to encounter a cow moose and her twins on the road. The cow quickly jumped back into the woods, but the twins were a little confused on which way to go.

Look like elk to me. Almost KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

They look slightly similar to the Fallow Deer we get in the UK. Nice moment to see :)

When they are small, but Elk are monsters when adults.

REally nice shot. I didn't know baby moose had spots. How lucky you were to come upon them. Too bad the mother took off.

If they are elk, then a cow moose is raising them.....however, look at the legs. Definitely look more like moose legs than elk.
