While moose can sometimes be pretty nonchalant around people, make no mistake, they know you are there. Harkening back to August in Gilpin County, Colorado for this image.
As usual, the rest of my camping crew was sleeping in and I was out looking for critters. I happened across this handsome fellow and a young bull as they enjoyed a breakfast of aspen tree leaves in a little valley not far from camp. They were well-concealed and a good distance away so my photo chances were few.
At one point, as the big boy walked along, he came to a small opening and cast me a glance letting him know I was there.
