Friday photo

Moose, Floating Island Lake, Yellowstone National Park, April 2004

Floating Island Lake is a tiny lake on the Mammoth-Tower road, an area of mostly open grass and sagebrush, with a number of glacial-remnant ponds filling the low spots. Generally, it's a rather dry area and not popular with moose; this is only the second one I ever saw here. Whenever I stopped at Floating Island Lake, it was mainly to watch and listen to the yellow-headed blackbirds (be sure to click on the link for the "typical voice").

This photo is a little heavy on digital noise, but I like how the reflection of the tree frames the moose in the water.
