    A moose is like an iceberg – you see 10% - 90% is under the water….

    Thanks Gale!

    Thanks Jim - well, I said I didn't get close enough to smell them.....I did have to back up quickly once or twice....
     
  5. Mark, You managed a lot of great moose shots up there was it your first time in the area? The lighting on some of you recent posts were terrific which can be difficult since access to the ponds and bogs is usually limited. I can't show my wife these or she will want to go right back up again, she's become a moose fanatic.

    Thank you for your kind words. It was our first time to Baxter State Park area. We have vacationed in Camden for many years, so Maine is not new but Moose are. We went to Conway NH last summer hoping to see Moose but none to be found. We are going back to Conway in a couple of weeks and hope to get up to 'Moose alley'. We went to Baxter in June to get some calf shots but they were hard to find. I plan to go back up in October to get the full rack shots - in June they are just coming out. Shooting Elk in Pennsylvania with Jim Strathearn last fall really gave me the bug to capture some 'big' animals. Some of the elk are pushing the size of moose but they are different animals.
     
  7. Wow Mark - these are beautiful. I'd be pretty nervous being that up close and personal with one of these beasts!

    Great shots!

    Stephanie, nervous is close but it is mixed in with exhilaration, and a natural rush of adrenaline.
