Ok here I am, sitting at my computer, doing emails at 6:30 am, and I look out the window to see something running up through the trees that are behind my house. First reaction was someones horse got out...then it hit an opening and here is mrs. moose. right in my own back yard.

Well by the time I got the camera ( forgot to unplug it from the usb cable and almost took my computer with me out the door ) I got out to the trees and mrs moose was headed over to our communities tennis courts and club house. I had to do some work with the photos, even with a long lens she had covered a lot of ground. but I got a few shots of her.

You are the quick draw Bruce with the camera, darn fast! And good shots too :clap: when the darn moose won't stop long enough "for deer in the head lights" pose and keeps trotting around the backyard. Hey thanks for sharing that one.


It won't be too long and you'll be hopefully covered up with the moose. Heck with going to Canada to hunt one when you might draw a tag for your backyard.

Cool pictures Bruce!

No moose, but I've had a bear visit us in the front yard a few times. They walk down the road like they own the place. I tried to get a picture or two, but I didn't want the bear in the house stealing my pizza!

The pictures show the moose's grace or should I say gait? Right place, right time, great photos.

You having a drought?

nope no drought, living above 10,000 ft elevation, the green season is pretty short. Heck only a month ago we had snow on the ground. In fact some of my friends still have snow in their yards, Then again their 2 storie house had one story of snow around them this year :)

That's neat. Are moose even something you expect to see in your area?
