Friendly encounter with a young moose - Alaska

Young Alaska moose - alces alces -, the largest subspecie of moose, near Homer, Alaska.


11 pm, little light, in summer there was virtually no night in Alaska, and I return on Homer Spit where I've pitched up my tent when I meet this young moose in the edge of a wood where he hides as soon as another person stops to observe him. I was thus obliged to go alone to meet him and apparently he was what he wanted! A friendly encounter.
