Hello paul. The two balances well in the frame. I like the clarity of them in natural habitat. Thanks for sharing and very well done. Regards. Jusni

Great capture of Swedish Moose. They seem to be more open-minded;o) and let you take photos at open. All the details in your description apply to the situation in Finland and Norway as well. The thought of spotting a moose in your headlights is scary. I has been close many times. Hitting one is likely to kill you. Very good composition, sharp details and grat BG displaying their habitat.

Hi Paul, it is a beautiful animal. We have a similar problem in Canada, with moose on the roads (in Newfoundland) where the moose was introduced and doesn't have any natural enemies. Your shot with the cow and calf is great, and you certainly have their attention. Nice detail seen on the two.

A cute pair, Paul. I like the way the two are in the frame. Great job capturing them both looking at you and their eyes. My only suggestion is with the tight crop they seem a bit far apart, I wonder if just a bit more space around them would give more of a feeling of a "couple?" (Of course, then they wouldn't be as big then.)
Lovely picture of the mother and her baby. unfortunately we do not have these magnificent animals here in Denmark - only when they try to escape ffrom Sweden:-0.
Very good and vivid colours, nice focus on the animals with nice details. Both animals are looking at you and therefore have your attention which is good. Though looking more at the picture I think that some of the background is without interest and also the little slope in front of the mother could make a very natural crop of in the bottom of the picture. Therefore I dared to make a ws - please forgive me but I could not help it.

Thanks for your critique on my recent lizard picture, Paul.
It is good to see a female Swedish Moose and her baby in the field and to know more about them through your note.
TFS and regards.

Excellent capture of the Moose and her calf. both seem to be posing for you to take their picture. I liked the POV and the composition here. Good natural colors.
Thanks for the share,
Good notes too. I didn't know that Mooses were so common in Sweden that you have to protect your highways from their invasion.:)
