Going to town to do errands is definitely not my favorite activity, but yesterday I got a reward for making the trip.
I got to see this youngster - munching at the Willows right along side the road, just about a mile from town.
Not the best photo in the world - the truck was moving when I snapped the shutter. But I'm still glad I was able to capture him - or is it a her??
It always amazes me when this kind of wildlife appears in populated places - and I always feel priviliged to have gotten a glimpse of a moose, an elk, a bear, or even a coyote.
After being here my entire life, I'm still waiting to get to see a cougar or a wolf. And I'm a little jealous because even my children have gotten to see them!
