Just back from my first visit to Yellowstone national Park, and the Grand Tetons. These images were taken in Grand Teton N.P. on a rather cold morning. It had warmed up by the time we found these two female moose dozing in the newly risen sun. I think some of our group may have gone a bit too close (still over 100 feet), because when they stood up they gave this little demonstration.

Hope you like the shots, and thank you for looking.

Wow thats really cool. I wanna go to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons so bad. Maybe this year. Great shots, but you might want to post them in the Wildlife section.

I totally agree with Great Shots and posting in the Wildlife section!

I take your point regarding posting in 'wildlife'. But I have a lot more images I might get round to posting, a mixture of wildlife in environment and straight scenes.So I thought my moose would fit into the 'nature' part of this thread. Perhaps the moderators will decide?

I bet that was fun to watch! Great shots.
Just an FYI, the moose on the left is male. You can see the scar left from where his antlers shed. Can't quite make out the one on the right. Could be female.
