    How cute!! I love the commentary! LOL I would love to see more pics of the moose. Funny I went to WY, ID and MT..... determined to see a moose in person.... never got to see one! I think they are really neat.

    a bit blurry, had to zoom in, from our deck, not going out there with the calf that'd be suicide. lol :wink: very protective moms.

    The Calf, I think it's a cow calf, didn't see any buds

    They browsed in the backyard for about and hour while it snowed, then moved on :) nothing is more impressive then a mature bull moose with a 50" + rack. :shocked:

    Really nice pics!

    Are moose the same as a whitetailed deer as far as antler growth? Bucks/Bulls have them and the cows/does don't?

    yes, cows dont grow any horns, bulls have massive horns, large humps and long beards.

    Wow Katrina...love your pics and your girls are so cute!

    So enjoyed seeing the pics of the moose....When visiting my daughter out in Washington, we went to a great animal preserve that had moose, they are the most impressive animals to see up close and in person, I just can't imagine seeing one on my own property......heck I still get excited when a herd of deer come across ours!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Great pics - I love the way that their ears were flapping when they were running - my girls their ears stay kinda solid when they run.

    Got on your photo site today at lunch. I'm so impressed with your photography! I had to pull myself away from the pictures to go back to work! You had some really cute kids this year! And I'm jealous because you’ve got more snow than us! As for the moose...awesome shots! I have a long drive to work and I've seen so many hit this year. I think it might have something to do with the warm winter bringing them down out of the hills. The moose you had in the yard looked really nice and dark.

    Great photographs... living in nature is so wonderful.... moose are funny creatures ... when I lived in Maine I had one on my driveway and he was not going to move until he was ready .... I was late but enjoyed his company for 30 min.

    Great photographs! I love the photos of the moose. I've only seen one once, from a canoe in Canada. They are unbelievably huge -- you can't really appreciate their size and mass until you see one in person. I'm jealous of you living in Alaska among all the beautiful wildlife! I spent some time there one September, from Kenai to Wasilla to Denali... and I'm pretty sure Alaskans live in the most beautiful, most wild place in all of America :)

    I love the "Oh no we are caught" picture.

    WOW I do not know what I would do if I saw a Moose in my back yard. (Of course they are not around here). They are so beautiful. All we get is deer and when the dogs see them they take off running.

    Thanks! I really enjoy photography ;) especially of goats

    and every time we go on vacation, I'm always looking for deer because I've only seen one wild one! lol. lots of dead ones on the road (you'd think they'd pick them up!) here there's a moose list- when a moose gets hit, and these things are huge, they call people to come butcher it so they can use the meat.
