selections #114


This is a video made in 2010 of my 2nd cousin, Vanessa, and the moose she raised during her summer internships at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

One of the early pictures of V & Jack.
 Jack was found with an injured leg when he was just three days old, Mom nowhere to be found.  
V spent many nights sleeping in a tent with him to comfort, feed and care for him in those first weeks.
These are actually two other moose calves that were rescued later.
The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center has many animals native to Alaska.  
They do great work to not only educate the community about conservation, but they have also been instrumental in reintroducing wood bison back into Alaska.
He was just starting to get his antlers here.
How's that for a big soft pillow?
This is one of my favorite pictures of V and Jack.

Sunday Selections was originally started by Kim, of Frogpondsrock ,as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files. 
It is now continued by River at Drifting through life and Sue at The Elephant's Child. The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.

  1. That is a simply stunning video and I love the photos too. The affection between Jack and Vanessa is so very evident and so very beautiful. Thank you.
