Estupenda imagen con buenos detalles y excelente luz. Buen encuadre Mike.
Un saludo, JL.

Hello Mike,
They are impressive and majestic animals and I never had the chance to see one in real, even if I often go to places where they are supposed to be :) This is a nice capture of this relaxing Mom with nice details and natural exposure. Thanks,

Hello Mike,
Here we're in the middle of the moose hunting season now, like in the rest of Scandinavia. In Sweden however, I read in the newspaper the moose is shooting back!
This is a good portrait of Mrs Moose, as she is taking a rest by the riverside!

I like the vulnerable pose of this mama moose lying on the ground.
Great light and POV.
Interesting how her backside is actually black.
Very sharp details.
TFS. ; )
