Hola Eve

Parece como si te observaran sin mirarte.

Saludos Epi

Hola, Epi.

Gracias por tus comentarios. En el verano, no estan asustados. Son muy grandes y pueden ser muy peligrosos. Permanezco lejano de ellos. Saludos de Montana!

Nice shot again, Eve! We were up on the Lochsa yesterday, and I was hoping spot moose, but no go...

Lucas likes this picture and actually recognized where it was:)

Hi Rich, I enjoy seeing moose at a safe distance, but really dislike surprising them at work or on the trail. They are the only animal I've been charged by, other than a domestic bull in all my years (17) in the field. For being huge, because of their dark color, they can be amazingly invisible when in thick vegetation. They are also unpredictable, and highly dangerous if surprised. They charge with no warning or body language whatsoever, and are incredibly powerful and agile for looking so large and awkward. So, it's nice to have them around, but watch out. By the way, these 'wild' moose live in the subdivision where my husband and I own property. There are often as many as ten resident moose there. The comment above you is from my sister, who owns the property next door:).

Eve, great shot of fantastic and strong creatures. An Image with big emotional impact. One of the best. "Ciao" from Italy, Gilberto. :)))
