Winter coat

In the summer, moose will develop a dark almost black coat. They look regal in their summer finest. In the spring however the winter fur moults and the moose looks pretty ragged and shaggy for a while. This cow on Metionga Lake looks like she is in that motley stage. In a few months she will replace that old fur with a rich dark coat that is attractive to fall suitors.
