p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The moose is loose


Took a short break.
Jeffrey's kind words encouraged me to crank up the old scanner and get back to work.
Not a winter shot (we don't have moose in Oregon's Willamette Valley).
A sway-backed female dipping for tasty munchies on the bottom of the pond.
Experience indicates that these big bruisers are far more tolerant of human approach when water separates them from us. Fine by me, because I have no desire to have one of them come after me because I made the mistake of getting too close.

Welcome back Charlie and Iím glad to know you are OK

I like the water coming off it and you have good eye contact

A friend was riding his motorcycle on a remote road when a family stepped out in front of him. When he realized he could not stop he put the bike down and slid under the mother with it watching him and even turning itís head as he slid between itís legs

Never having seen a moose in the wild, I find these quite entertaining. This must be just after she came up for air...I can't image such a wake otherwise...cool shoot.

I'm glad you are back Charlie. Keep posting. For some reason, the old tv western "Have Gun, Will Travel" comes to mind. Have Camera, will travel...

Paladin, Paladin, where do you roam
Paladin, Paladin, far, far from home


Have camera, will travel reads the card of a man
A knight without armour in a savage land
His fast camera for hire heeds the calling wind
A soldier of fortune is the man called Paladin


Paladin, Paladin, where do you roam
Paladin, Paladin, far, far from home


He travels on to wherever he must
A chess knight of silver is his badge of trust
There are campfire legends that the plainsmen spin
Of the man with the camera, of the man called Paladin


Paladin, Paladin, where do you roam
Paladin, Paladin, far, far from home
Far from home
Far from home

Ron

The water looks inviting, but you were right to use it as a buffer zone. Nice one, Charlie.

Thanks Morris, KCollett, Eric, Birdie, kmunroe, Paul, Ron, Don and Wayne.
Skidding and sliding UNDER a moose!? Wow- that's an experience to be remembered.
I remember Paladin and the TV show. Among other things, it was probably the only time the lead actor played the role of a nice guy .

You captured here a good moment with the moose.
Cool water action too.

Thank you Gary, Rob, Chris, Lil, Socrate and David.
The water was shallow enough that plants could grow on the bottom (one of the differences between a pond and a lake), but deep enough that Ms Moose had to completely submerge herself to wrap those luscious lips around the tasty plants she liked. When she came up to chew and swallow- that was when I pressed the shutter.
When moose are feeding in ponds, they usually give us enough time to watch and photograph several "dips" before they move on.
