Backlit female moose (Alces alces) grazing on underwater plants. Moose take advantage of beaver dams as flooded areas become prime locations for feeding on underwater plants but also on branches that beavers store underwater in preparation for the long winter time.

Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, US
