A moose browses on willow along the Bow Valley Parkway, in Banff National Park Alberta Canada, on Feb 22nd 2012.  This bull moose has lost one antler. Soon the other side will drop as well.  This happens every year.  The moose will grow a new set of antlers by mid-summer in preparation for the breeding season, also known as the rut in the fall.  Photo by Gus Curtis.
