A moose calf stands next to its mother on the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge on June 25. The photographer, Buck Domitrovich, used a telephoto lens so as not to disturb the animals.
With area wildlife giving birth in the spring, babies abound. As cute and cuddly as they may seem, it’s important to leave the little critters alone.
