I'm glad you stayed Lisel - great shot.

yeah me too, and thanks!

So I honestly thought I was going to get trampled today. I was taking a break from the computer out looking for birds to photograph when I hear this crashing through the trees. I see this young male moose. Pretty soon it pops out in the clearing where I am standing. It sees me and I thought it would take off but it didn’t. It starts walking towards me! ? So do I turn and make a run for it or do I stay and take pics? Well as you can see I stayed and survived. And it wasn’t until I got home and was working on the photos when I saw why this moose was not behaving like a moose. It was covered in ticks.
