This massive moose decided that the willow bush I was hiding behind would be a nice spot to have lunch. He didn't care that I was there. What a great afternoon.

I had to laugh a bit.... only 100mm. You were right next to him. I love the photograph's framing/composition and the final results.

Very well done. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Thanks, guys. Yeah, it was a great experience. He sauntered up to the bush I was using for cover - and decided it looked tasty. He was quite a ways off when I started, but that didn't last. I didn't really want to move - didn't want him to get riled up. But I couldn't zoom out any more - haha.

Man, these guys are ~big~.

About an hour later, I was down at the lake shore, and the same moose came out of the thickets. Again, he strolled right over to where I was - tucked up in the trees for cover/protection. I couldn't believe how close he was. Wow. Then he wandered over to the other side of the lake.

I guess I was amused because I often photograph our growing kitten, documenting his growth into a cat, with my 100L macro so I know how close you were, give or take a few inches/feet.

One or two steps and you could have touched him..... not that you would have tried. ;)
