"Mini Moose and Mama"

A mother moose (Alces alces) tends to its young calf--only about 2 weeks old-- in the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska during my Magic of Alaska workshop (2014). Moose are often difficult to photograph in a beautiful way because they are almost always behind bushes, trees, or in poor light. Alternatively, they will sometimes stand in the open; however, an open field is not very photographically pleasing to the eye. This particular moment it all came together after some patient observing on the part of the photographer!
