Exploring the World – One Image at a Time

Moose

Moose on a Mission

  • The Boy and I usually go for walks in the morning, if it is nice out.  This particular morning I really didn’t feel like going, knew I was just being lazy, so garbed the camera and off we went.  We were just meandering in the pasture.  Surroundings were pretty quiet.  I stopped to take some shots of a thorn bush, the boy was off exploring.  Something caught my eye and I looked over into the field and saw something moving.  Looked again and it was a moose.  Called the Boy over and leased him and moved a bit closer and started taking photos.  Took awhile for the Boy to see the moose and then I was holding him while taking shots.  The  moose stopped, saw us and didn’t seem to be upset.  Continued on his way up the hill towards the yard site which is the other side of the poplars in the photos.  He stopped on the hill and must have seen the horses as he stood for awhile.  As soon as they saw him he turned and ran back towards us.  He saw us and the Boy saw him and he turned away from us.  Turned out to be a good day for a while with the Boy and a camera.  Enjoy.
