moose Hanging out with some moose

Today I came across several moose - both in the morning and again in the evening. Here are some of the images captured from my visit with the moose...

Dave, those are wonderful photos. I would ordinarily point out which I like best, but that is not possible in this case. I like them all best.

Thanks. These are but a few of the hundred or so images I captured - figuring out which were best to post took way too long last night...

Awesome Moose photos Dave! I LOVE them all, but I have to say my favorite is the first Moose photo you posted.

The Moose looks so majestic standing there looking off into the distance with his reflection in the water. The photo is mesmerizing.

No antlers... throws us for a loop every time. I think we're all on auto pilot and toss the he and him in subconsciously. My favorite is the middle photo where she's looking straight at us. Love that eye contact.

The sunlight on the baby is very appealing to my eye. They're all very good. It is frequently very difficult picking a best when you share photos.

3 & 5! 3 Looking you right in the eye! 5 with the baby of course. Eye contact and babies! Are they actually getting something from the water or just fond of drinking a lot?
