[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Newfoundlad moose population descended from just four moose that were introduced to the Island province in 1904. The average weight for an adult male varies from 850 to 1200 pounds. The moose lives in excess of 20 years. It is the largest of the deer family.

The moose population on the Island is estimated at 125,000 animals with a possible harvest of 22,000 per year.

With such a great number, it is very feasable to hit them while driving at night on small roads. There are always a few fatalities each year in both people and animals.

We counted 12 animals that day in a distance of aproximatly 10 miles.

Excellent clarity, great composition!

Great shot Jack, good sharpness and exposure giving excellent details in its fur. Reduced depht of field bring attention on main subject. To bad there wasn't more light on that dull day to bring out more highlight (catch light) in its eye. A flash burst would have done a great job, but would have also scare the animal. Great work.
