    We went to Maine last week to ‘shoot’ moose (and eat lobster). Here are just a couple that I have been able to get to – more to come, I promise.

    Some were close, but not really close,

    Some were further away,

    There were Bald Eagles,

    And there were nice sunsets,

  2. They sure are big, aren't they? Could you smell them as you got close? We could when we went looking for them last year...

    Nice pics!

    They are big! They must have just taken their spring baths as the did not smell that much - I think the fly dope we had on must have over powered their smell.

    I do not believe he really wanted his photo taken. 'Gordon', who we heard a lot about but did not see, has the reputation for allowing you to to get close and take as many shots as you want - he seems to just not care and keeps eating/sleeping or what ever he is doing. Most of them seem to not care, I am not sure how well they can really see you and understand. As long as you do not make wid movements, keep relatively quiet and move slowly, they just seem to ignore you.
