Bring Bug Spray!!!

Tonight Brian and I walked along the river at dusk.  We saw a cow moose and her calf across the river sitting in the tall grass.  The calf's ears were sticking out of the grass, occasionally disappearing as s/he ate some grass.  A short way further there was another cow moose on our side of the river munching quite loudly on grass and flowers.  None of them were too worried about us. 

We also spotted a family of ducklings swimming and running on the top of the water, and we disturbed a pair of herons who were feeding on the river.  The mosquitos were obnoxious!  The bats were skimming the water, but that didn't help us any.  We left without bug spray.  Big mistake, so don't forget your bug spray!
