Monday Moose

MR_moose_2

While near the end of a recent hike, just tromping along which that feeling that being almost back at the car brings, we ran across this male Moose quietly munching away on the remaining summer greens. We had spent the day trying to take close-ups of the remaining summer wildflowers flowers so the 105 mm macro lens was on the camera. Good thing this guy was so close.

Near Crested Butte, CO.

    1. Thanks Jet, it was indeed a treat to see this guy at the end of a hike and having him close enough to photograph without a long lens was a bonus. Hope your day is going well and wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

    1. Hi Eliza, yes the fall colors are coming a bit early this summer and not because of cold days but it has been a bit dry. Some years this field with the moose is still filled with flowers this time of year.

  1. Amazing photo. I have always wanted to see a moose in nature. The last time we were going to hike the trail where the moose sightings occurred, bears were in the area. The park ranger wouldn’t let us go any further.

    1. Hi, we have also run across a female and her calves but is sure was fun to see this guy that afternoon. Hope your having a great day and thanks for the feedback as we really appreciate it.

feedback welcome
