[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today once again an upload out of my meeting with our king of the forrest,the elk or swedish moose,while I was able to follow his behaviour for about 10 to 15 minutes ,he finally climbed up the mountain,but he gave me a nice look at me before he disappeared in the forrest.
I took this picture handheld while I was standing alongside the road,unfortunatly the forrest was filled with bushes and branches (the elks lunch) and I was not able to get a clear shot of him,however I enjoyed this meeting and thanked my model.

bonjour Paul,
ohoho, pour une rencontre c'est une rencontre :)
Les branches au contraite donnent un bon côté naturel, et l'intensité au regard, on sent bien qu'il t'a vu et se trouve devant deux choix: partir ou chargé.

bien vu.

Hello Paul,
Great capture of this moose, I know the twigs are frustrating but with out them the moose would not be there. Thanks for sharing your great experience with us.

indeed eye to eye, TFS this beautiful pic and creature, Ori

Hello Paul,
That must have been quite an impressive encounter :-) Your moose look very different from ours. You caught very nice details in a good POV. I think that he look pretty calm. Well seen and well done! Thanks,

Hello Paul,
Whow, what a perfect shot of this moose.
Great on the details, perfect composition.

Hoi Paul,
Wat een foto! Prachtig hoe je oog contact hebt met deze reus. De foto heefts iets grappigs. Dit komt waarschijnlijk door de snuit en de grote oren. Met het takje in de voorgrond kun je twee kanten op, of je er aan storen of het spionen gehalte juist mooi vinden. Ik vindt het wel wat hebben.
