Mooses
« on: January 05, 2014, 01:52:42 PM »
Hi all,

Here are some pics of a beautiful bull taken in the forest near Québec city last fall. All the family was there (pics on my web site) but i followed the male in the forest for more than 2 hours to be able to take a few interesting shots in this very busy environnement. Very cloudy day with first snow (ice) falling. Pics taken with 1DX and the 70-200mm IS ll. Almost all full frame or very slighly reframed for composition.

Very good images indeed! I particularly liked the first one. In my part of the world we have lots of moose and I love their majestic movement. But to shoot a specimen of this quality in my woods, you would have to work hard and be very patient. Thanks for sharing!

They are all wonderful, I like the first one the best also. It's a bull, not a "buck" where I come from.

Here's a couple of pics from last November here in Grand Teton National Park.  This Bull Moose was near a frozen creek and almost did a split on it before his hoofs broke through the ice. Pics taken with 1D Mark IV an 500mm L IS.

I have always felt that moose are exotic and calm animals and especially the male moose are quite awesome to watch. Thanks for the excellent pictures which are shot to perfection. While I was visiting Algonquin provincial park and staying in Algonquin lakeside inn I had some close encounters with whole lot of moose families. These pictures in the thread remind me of my last trip to Algonquin Park where I had spend some memorable days.
