Wow Fee, if I had been in the presence of such a magnificent animal as that I'd have been shaking so badly I'm not sure even a tripod could have helped me. :)
All the captures are great, but the last 2 really stand out for me with great poses, backgrounds, and crisp focus. That is definitely a "lifer" worth adding!

Awesome series! Excellant camera work! The movement of the water dripping off the face and around the feet add a lot of character to the images.

Thanks Trique. I lucked out. :)

what's that dingle dangly thing under its chin. Amazing animal, we dont see them here so my only views are photographs.

Thanks for stopping by. I saw you already got the answer from some nice members. :)

He almost seems like he is smiling in the last picture.

As for what is under its chin, it is called a dewlap and it is just a flap that grows hair and is present on both male and females, though it is usually more pronounced on males.

Thanks for the great information! I'll post the "reason" soon, why he turned his head. ;)

Fee, these are some of the best moose photos I've seen. Great work.

Thanks a ton for the kind remark Stan! :D

Nice! Seeing wild moose is on my bucket list. Missed them last time I was in Alaska.

Thanks head2heel. Hope you see some soon. ;)

Awesome captures, specially for your first time. I wonder why or what it turned to look at in #4. KUDOS to you.

Thanks Al! I'll post the "reason" soon, why he turned his head. ;)

Great pictures, I agree with the others, some of the best of a bull moose in the wild that I've seen.

Which lens did you use? You noted 500mm

I appreciate the compliments BH! It was my Sigma 50-500mm EX non-OS. Really enjoyed the lens. :)

That's not huge. That would be gynormous!

Wonderful series.

Thanks Kevan. Cheers! :)

No kidding Steve! My heart was pounding "HARD" for the longest time as i kept snapping away. IS, OS, VC, VR wouldn't have helped. :lol: It was exciting to see in front of me a magnificent mammal like this.

I've been looking at that lens more (with the OS). Looking at how well it worked for you it's starting to push me more in that direction. I having rafting/fishing trip coming up this summer in central AK and not having to mess around with different lenses is appealing. My last trip I always had the wrong lens on (guaranteed).

Thanks Chris. If i had your 40D then, it would have probably be even better. :D

It's hard to go wrong with this lens. The versatility is hard to beat, and you said you are going for the OS version. That's even better!
