You have captured a great moment Heather. I am glad that you were given the opportunity to see them, hopefully more to come. Very nicely captured.

Thank you so much Debra. I would love to come across this pair again and will keep checking around the area where I saw them. Here's hoping :)

Thank you Jeff, much appreciated. I haven't seen a moose all winter, not even the one that hung around my yard sometimes at night, so this was a special encounter for me.


There fun to do It is a right plase time you got them

Very nice and well composed shot Heather. Surprising how dark came out the fur of the cow moose contrasting with the surrounding soft tones. Appreciate that you waited to get a beautyfull motherhood moment. You always choose an emotional moment.

Thank you Yves, much appreciated. They are a healthy looking pair and after the challenging winter we had it was great to see them looking so good. It's always special to come across a cow moose and calf and it was such a privilege to be able to photograph them.

A cow moose watches me cautiously while waiting for her calf to catch up and take cover behind her after making it safely across the highway. I took a few quick photos and let them be on their way.
