Mary Christmoose by Mike Oxley

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

A young cow moose took up residence in a field down the road from work for a couple of days in the winter a number of years back. She became quite the attraction and I was lucky enough to get quite a few shots of this lovely lady. And, of course, I can’t leave well enough alone. The warped humour kicks in and this is the result. I hope it brightens up your day a little – I had a fair bit of fun doing it.

    Lol!!! Love the wee hat! Happy Moo-Year, too!!

  • Many thanks, Deb. Glad you got a chuckle out if it! The wee hat is a Christmas tree shape I found in the shapes gallery and I gave it a rainbow effect so it looked more like a little hat.
