[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A rare sight not often caqptured on film. This picture was shot in may 2005 just outside stockholm, showing a female moose chasing away her own calf, beause she is to old to stay with her.Even if the picture is unsharpe its still of interest.

yes very interesting subject indeed - such a sad story though - i can only imagine how the young deer must be feeling, but, nature does not know feelings of course.

Interesting - I always enjoy seeing views if animal's behaviour, even if the shot is not perfect.

Its an interesting shot indeed, and hard to spot these sometimes. With them in action like this it makes the shot worth while, must have been far from them but still an interesting shot.

Keep it up...
