[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An evening in the forest (with a lot of mosquitoes) when I tried to get some photos of a black-throated diver. The diver never came close enough, but I was lucky to see this female moose on the bog. It´s not happen every day so I was glad for that.

I was using the 2x extender here and ISO speed 500.

Hej Peter,
Great atmosphere in this beautiful scene. You've caught the Elk very nicely just as it turns its head. The evening light is wonderful and I like seeing it at the edge of the forest like one often does! Nicely composed too!
Tfs and regards, Ulla

Hello Peter,
even more than the moose the ambiance of your picture is great.
And just before the moose steps out of your picture, he looking back of what she's leaving.

Hi Peter

I love this shot, the composition is so beautiful. The low POV really works. The light with the warm tones are just amazing.

Hello Peter,
Looks young, no? Great timing to capture her looking back. The warm light makes the colors very attractive. Regards,

Hi Peter,

A very nice capture of this moose,the light and colors are awesome,the ones I mostly meet are in the shade and in the darkplaces,where they are difficult to capture,you did a great job on this one and I think the black-throated diver will possibly come another tme,
