Moosing in Action

On our way to dinner last night we saw a moose. This thrilled us quite a bit, since 1) we hadn't seen one here in several years — the woods are full of them, but whether they make themselves available for photo opportunities depends on the time of day, the weather, and, presumably, moose mood — 2) we had never seen one with antlers, and this one had them, small ones, but antlers nonetheless.

Unfortunately, all moose are crepuscular, and the males are very shy, so neither the light nor the distance was ideal.

There's a moose there, really. You'll probably have to take my word for the antlers, though.

A side note: at this point, due to limited computer time here in moose country, I owe just about everybody comments and/or email. Please bear (or moose) with me.


  • Argh! I want to see the moose...but I can't. Maybe on my laptop at home? Anyway, how lucky you are to have spotted him! Every time we go to Maine I hope to see a moose, but no dice so far.

  • It is either a moose or a sasquatch!

  • Crepuscular - now that's a great word. I'm always amazed at how big they are.

  • Looks like a Great Dane to me.

  • I ESE IT! I SEE IT! I saved the pic to my HD and did a little adjusting. It's HUGE. Well, it IS a moose. VERY cool.
