Nice story. When I went to Canada I was lucky enough to see a moose but mine was a sorry looking thing as his rack had been knocked over his eyes. Yours looks like a nice healthy animal and the light here is lovely.
Nice ... Bull in velvet .. Have you tried RAW images with the 30D? It takes more PP, but the images are wonderful.

I love moose. And this is a great capture. A very little bit obscured by the tree but just enough to reveals the critter's personality! Perfect!

Wonderful moose image and even better story. I love the "TIMING" on this one. Very nice.

There is a lot of atmosphere in this photo. Also the light is super in this capture.

I agree timing is everything. I can only say, you were lucky you had this lens attached to your camera and not your 10-20mm. You are making me curious about the shutter speed and the mode you were in when you made this photo.
The pose is priceless, especially to see him still a bit camouflaged by the tree. It makes it more of a wildlife photo then the clean blurry BG photos. The exposure on the bull is perfect, with still a pretty good sharpness.
Getting back to the cloning talk. On this photo I would have cloned out the little grey stick at the bottom. But besides that, a super cool shot and I whish I would have made it myself.

Very good picture of that moose, colors are good. I think that the contrast are a bit high but this is just a small detail. Good POV. TFS.

Looks like he was on his way to growing s very large rack. I'm glad to see you had a good trip to the Tetons. You have done well considering the hard lighting in this photo.

Great capture Evelynn, I like the light in this shot. The highlights and shadows on his coat make this visually interesting. The pose and look is great also. I would love a new DSLR with bigger LCD and also just having a second body. The 30D is tempting but I am holding out for maybe the next step in Canon's line. Anyhow, very well done.

Hi Evelynn, what a great picture, nice moment and composition, you were lucky to take the shot exactly when he was looking at you.
