Spokane-area photographer Craig Goodwin took a picture Tuesday of this moose eating lily pads on the shore of a North Idaho lake.

Moose calves are typically born in May and June. During that time, the cows are protective of their young and aggressive if they feel threatened. Be particularly cautious around calves. If you see a calf, but no mother moose, carefully leave the area as you may have inadvertently stepped between the mother and child.
