2021—Nibbling on a Rosebush

Kincaid Park near the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is where we finally succeeded in finding moose to photograph last week. This young bull is nibbling on a Rugosa Rose, an invasive rose species that seems to suit his palate. Someone had dumped a huge pile of garden waste on this access road near the airport which contained branches from the rose. A couple of times, we found moose sifting through the pile of trimmings to find a delicacy and all deer seem to love nibbling on roses.
