Saw this huge muscular bull Moose in Fishercap Lake off Swiftcurrent Pass in Glacier National Park. I was especially excited because it was my first bull moose since started wildlife photography. Glad to finally have something to add to my life list .
Critique and comment are welcome.

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.

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.

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

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


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

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

It's called a bell. Nobody knows what it's for for sure, they think to spread scent around although it doesn't have a gland in it.
