When I'm not working sports full-time I like to get out and spend some time with megafauna. So last week I spend out in Northern Colorado photographing moose. It was some long days but the weather was great and the opportunities were definitely fantastic.

There were a few landscapes to mix in and a few raptors but I tried to keep the focus on the moose!

A superb set Matt. My favorite of the wildlife images is the two females facing each other with the mountains in the background. The rainbow mixed with landscape in an very unusual image and a stunner. I love all the different conditions you have presented.

Thanks Morris! That rainbow caught us by surprise because it dropped so low into the valley so I shot it with the only lens I had on me at the time. The rest were in the truck. We definitely got a mix of conditions and a great variety of subjects and backdrops so it made for a very diverse photo set!

Much appreciated! The Osprey was just in too good of light to not make a photo of!

yeah, there was a bit of touch and go rain showers throughout the week and it just seemed to bring a number of pleasing elements together!

Much appreciated. Moose are one of my favorite subjects so it's easy to spend the time to get some great composition with them!

I really love that lens, and I don't get it out enough. For some reason I default to the 100-400 but for this trip I left the 100-400 at home and took the 135 & 400 and could not be happier with the outcome!

The black and white is superb! The ones with rain are extra special. Beautiful set!

Appreciate it - I love working in black and white. Rain and weather elements are definitely something I haven't shot in much but I agree it adds a different element.
