This is a first for me. I normally struggle to see these huge moose's but this time i got lucky. On a short drive to a nature reserve area I drove around a corner only to find two large moose's. Thank god I was driving so slow. This is one of my last shots which i thought would be the first to post on trek nature from the shots i had of the moose's.

At times i could not believe my luck when I just used the car as shelter to capture some amazingly close shots, portraits of these subjects. There was a moment when i was really tempted to stroke one, thats how close i managed to get to them. They were eating leaves from a tree and they seemed to to be bothered that I was there snapping away. Luckily for me i had two camera's with me at the time. One had too large a lens and the other a smaller lens:

Focal Lenght 53mm
ISO 100
Aperture 5.6

Hello Demetrio,
They are very fine animals, but situations like this regretfully too often end in a much more sad way...
The animal is well captured here, sharp fine details and image is well composed!

Hi, Demetrio, so you finally captured one, close up, congratulation, and a good one too.

Regards, Anders.

A typical Swedish view!! Great that you had time to "click"! I did not, when a moose cow and her child crossed the road, recently! Where I live, in Southern Sweden, the moose goes into the gardens and eat whatever is eatable. Not so long ago a moose cow went through the window into a restaurant in the middle of the town!
