A young bull moose in the process of shedding the “velvet” from his antlers. Not the safest time to approach too closely, but this one was quite unconcerned after I had watched him quietly for awhile and only interrupted his grazing to glance at me now and then. He was in the bush just off the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Nova Scotia. I posted a side view of him a few days ago.
Taken with a Fuji S100FS camera.

    Gorgeous capture of this magnificent animal. Actually hit one on the highway once…..Guess who won, car or Moose lol ? Well the moose won quite easily and went on his way. The car was a write off !

  • Hi Sean, thanks very much.My grand-daughter and her guy hit one about a year ago in eastern Ontario, only a mile or two from their house.The moose came up out of the ditch right in front of their van, They weren’t hurt but the moose had to be put down. I think it had broken legs. She’s a great animal lover and it really tore her up for awhile.

    Beautiful capture of a magnificent animal, George. It’s very unfortunate that encounters with cars happen so often and it’s going to get a lot worse as fall approaches.

  • Good morning Mike, and thank you. Yes, the fall is a bad time, they seem to get more inclined to come out of the bush in many areas.Same as deer, it’s a bit dicey driving at night in many areas.
