Photographed in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, this young bull moose was just coming out of the water after swimming a small lake to begin looking for a cow.

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

    He’s got a determined look about him…Nice!

  • I appreciate your comments. We saw this bull the very first thing in the morning but I only got a photo of him the second time around in the afternoon

    Great shot….you have to love Algonquin for the moose. I hired a guide last summer who took us out by boat. It was an incredible experience.

  • Thanks Bill. Did you go out with Michael Bertelsen? I was with him during this moose shoot.

    This is terrific, Stephen. Well, now it looks as if I’ll have to add Algonquin Prov Park to the ever expanding Bucket List. I’d love to see more moose…in good light…in the water….I don’t ask for too much, do I? Cheers! G

  • Thank you Gina. Moose are fairly plentiful and accessible in the early spring there and during the fall rut (late September and early October). During the summer months they disperse more widely access to them is better done by boat or canoe.
