The Little Moose

Here’s a shot from Kananskis Country a couple weeks back of a very obliging young moose we encountered just off the side of the road. While my focus is usually on making landscape images when I’m out shooting and not pursuing wildlife, every once in a while I’m able to get a critter in the viewfinder. I try to remember to keep my longest lens, (70-300) attached when I’m on the road for occasions like this one. I don’t have any really long and fast glass, and I’m certainly a long way from calling myself a wildlife shooter, but I kind of like this one. He reminds me of the main character in my 16 month old daughter’s favourite book right now, “The Little Moose”.
