A prime example of how you really need to be aware when out in the wild.
There were a number of Moose bulls in the area and I was moving to try to get a better angle for my pictures. As I trudged along a faint trail among some willows I suddenly come across this big, big guy.
Unlike the other bulls that were standing up and eating, this one decided it was a nice place to relax and had laid down among the thick brush so I didn’t see him until I was within about 15 feet. Yikes! That is not something you want to do.
I slowly backed away to a safe distance, snapped one picture, and then let the sleeping bull lie so to speak.
