In The Willows

You never know what you will find hidden in the willows is what this guy was probably thinking when he noticed we were peeking in from the edge of his terrain. It always amazes me just how easy a creature the size of the moose can disappear from your sight with a simple step or two into the willows. Photographed near Cottonwood pass in Colorado.

Working in the willows

We saw this large male moose working his way across a small clearing knee deep in the willows last weekend. Picking and choosing small mouthfuls to eat yet walking with purpose from left to right. After a few minutes of good viewing this big guy headed back into the forest and out of sight. Medicine Bow National Forest, WY.

Monday Moose

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.
