Meet Millie the Moderately Moist Moose

It was darn near as dark as sundown and the air was full of rain this morning when I came up over a rise on the Tomahawk to find the big black blob in the road. She dove down into this swamp and, of course, paused to look back a few times before fading away for good.

Thanks, Deitz. That's the camera's meter at work, exposing the image more brightly than the ambient light, plus a little more brightening in post processing.

Thanks, folks. Quetico, the bottom one is not sharp because of the rain. Shame the rain wasn't backlit so it would show. I may work some texturing into it in photoshop to make it look a bit like a watercolor.

Ken, the title was all for you, buddy! gringrin

There's just no slowing you down lately. I sure hope that's not the last remaining moose in the area. It's a shame that they are getting so rare. But, leave it to you to run across one. wink

I really like the second shot, as you can see him watching you, out of the corner of his eye.

You're going to run out of wall space pretty soon, if you keep this up. grin

That first one is sweet, Steve! That would be fun chasing these guys around.

I like that second shot Steve, that look or air about her says "go ahead I dare you to take my picture".

I also like the second one, the side profile of a mooses nose is something I can't get over.

I also like how she is looking at you out of the corner of her eye in the second one.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
