Bull Moose in Teton N.P., Wyoming by Ann  Van Breemen

Bull Moose in Teton N.P., Wyoming by 

Taken in Jackson, Wyoming, USA, on a freezing cold morning. I was on such a high from seeing my first wild moose bull that I really didn’t notice the cold. Not much, anyway.:)

*The moose (North America) is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates.

Moose are mostly diurnal. They are generally solitary with the strongest bonds between mother and calf. Two individuals can sometimes be found feeding along the same stream.
Mating occurs in September and October. The males are polygamous and will seek several females to breed with. During this times both sexes will call to each other. Males produce heavy grunting sounds that can be heard from up to 500 meters away, while females produce wail-like sounds.
Males will fight for access to females. They either assess which is larger, with the smaller bull retreating, or they may engage in battles, usually only involving the antlers.
Female moose have an eight-month gestation period, usually bearing one calf, or twins if food is plentiful, in May or June. Newborn moose have fur with a reddish hue in contrast to the brown appearance of an adult. The young will stay with the mother until just before the next young are born.* (Wikipedia.)

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    Bundle up, Ann and get out there to capture more of these fantastic images you’ve been posting. That new lens is getting a work out with excellent results. This is really a swell image.

  • Hi there Whalegeek. I’ve been having a ball. I’m so glad I met up with Annie. She’s fantastic. My new lens actually fell out of the backpack as my other half put it on when we had just arrived in Jackson. Lucky it’s tough and in it’s case. My fault. I didn’t zip up the backpack properly. For a moment I thought my trip was over before it had even begun.:)
