Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
If you ever have a chance to photograph a wild moose and you see this look – head for the hills! The Tetons photo tour group came upon this beautiful creature not long after a jerky teenager had tormented it. So we were wary of its temperament, and we attempted to keep a respectful distance, as dictated by park regulations. I knew that the moose was not in a happy mood when I saw his direct attention through my camera’s viewfinder.
Wasting no time, I scrambled for cover behind the tour vehicle, and another photographer was pushing me from behind. I almost fell down in a ditch in the process. Oh yes, a heart attack was imminent too. The bull moose charged. However, it ran toward the back area of the tour vehicle while I was huddled near the front. Whew. Ah, the joys of wildlife photography!
But hey, I got some good photos of Bullwinkle, like the one above! Hahaha…
