It Moose Be Dinner Time

It's that time of the year again. The moose are coming down from the mountains in search of an easier meal. This lovely lady came to visit tonight and enjoy a dinner of Mountain Ash leaves from my tree in the back yard. She was very patient and put up with half a dozen neighbors running around and taking her picture. I just stood on the back porch and enjoyed the show. I find it fascinating that they are never interested in the potted plants. A neighbor told me once that they seem to love her rose bushes, and they delicately pluck off the rose buds and eat them.
Although they are very calm creatures, moose can run up to 35 miles an hour in spurts, so we try to give them their space and not tick them off. Dinner and a show. What more can you ask for? Have a great night.
