Wedding Bonus

Shot a wedding yesterday and was finished after the "first dance". Headed for home and saw the first moose I've come across in over a year. It was about 9:15, but I had my 50D on the seat beside me with the 70-200 on it. Cranked it up to ISO 3200 and prayed. Here's what I got:

Oh, I love moose (mooses?) (moosi?) (meese?). And the lighting is great. Amazing. But in that first photo, he appears to be a moose of very little brain. Their heads never seem that small when you see them standing up to their knees in marsh. My preference is the second. Nice shots.

Ken was that down on Hwy. 21 between Ely and Babbitt?

I was coming back from a family portrait session in Pine City last night and went the back way through Biwabik and Embarrass and up 21 to Ely. I drove into town at 9 p.m. on the nose, and you ran into the mooster only 15 minutes later.

Sure you're not Irish? I've never heard of "the luck of the Finns." gringringrin

Yep. Right next to that old beaver flowage. Thought you knew that the Irish were our southern cousins - the luck 'o the Finns has been with us for a long time!

Can you imagine if Moose could stand on their hind legs like a human? Boy they'd be tall. Something about that first pic strikes me odd. Like some sort of woman in heels with fur shawl on or something.

And legs that go on forever. grin

I'll be in the Ely area wednesday nite thru friday morning. Hopefully I'll luck upon a moose, wolf or bear. Of course, I'm not going to be holding my breath. I'll be happy with Ladyslippers.

Way to go, Ken.

It almost looks like a second moose in the second picture to the left.

Nice shots
