I am a biologist by training and consider myself a seriously addicted semi-professional nature photographer. This addiction is currently partially controlled by me still having a full-time job. All bets will be off when I can retire in a few years

    Very nice Stephen…

  • Thanks again Ted. She was moose # 5 on day 1 of my trip. We saw a bull, then a cow with her growing calf and another bull and finally this cow, the most photogenic of them all.

    Beautifully captured Stephen. Love the composition and details. Well done! Saw my share of these guys and gals along Cabot Trail in the last two weeks. They sure are massive. ;-)


  • Thank you Francine. I’ve got to get back to Cape Breton someday. I knew that there were a lot of them there.
