I could read the thoughts in her eyes, I’m here and you’re there and let’s keep it that way! These two moose were grazing peacefully in a boggy patch on top of McKenzie Mountain on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Nova Scotia, Canada. October 2005. Getting along towards sunset and just lucky(?) enough to stumble across them and get a couple of shots. And very carefully retreat!Taken with a Sony DSCF828 camera.

“That’s close enough!”

    Cool capture…absolutely …lovely natural surrounding…lovely details and tones..these animals are still very alive in…Northern ,Quebec..we can,t really go in the woods during hunting season..too dangerous

  • Thanks Marchello. I spent a lot of time in Northern Quebec back in the mid-50’s and never saw one, but 3 times I’ve come across them in Cape Breton.
