2017-02-17: What I’ve seen this week

I had a call Friday around 5:30 from one of my neighbours, inviting me to come up to their house with my camera, as they had a moose in their backyard!  I’ve seen moose a few times before but only for quick glances either while driving, or seeing them disappear into the bushes, so I headed up the road as quick as I could.

For a very large animal, moose are amazingly well camouflaged in and amongst the pines and other evergreens.  It was growing dark quickly as well and the moon wasn’t up yet, so getting an awesome shot was out of the question.  It was just so nice to be able to spend a bit of time watching the moose graze before it headed off towards the ravine.

I did see the moose again on my morning walk yesterday, but only briefly as it slipped deeper into the trees and completely disappeared within moments.  Maybe someday I will be lucky and see one in the daytime and have enough time to get some decent photos.

Wishing you all a great day 🙂

This was the best I could capture (and this was the most exposed the moose ever got while I was there).  1/60 sec, f5.6, ISO 6400.
