Moose Monday - I Saw Moose in Yellowstone National Park!

I was lucky to spot this mother and calf from a distance (near the bottom center of the following photo).

Then they decided to swim in the lake.   See photo in last week's post: Moose Monday - Moose Memorable Moment of My Latest Visit to Yellowstone National Park

I had to run to my car and to safety once I saw in my viewfinder that the moose where swimming in my direction (objects/animals may be closer than you realize by the time you stop looking through the viewfinder!).

From the seat of my car, I was able to get the following close-up shot of these wonderful pair of moose.

Let's say that you do not want to be close to a moose especially if it is a mother and her calf!

If you need advice of what to do if you are approached by a moose, check out the following link on what you need to do in the following moose cam video by Jeff Ewelt, Director at the Beartooth Nature Center in Red Lodge, Montana: Jeff the Nature Guy with Moose Advice  .

 

Happy Moose Monday!

Mommy does not look too happy that you were eyeing her little calf.

Jim,

She definitevely was on guard!   She was very concerned at first but she eventually realized that I had nothing but good intent.  :)
