Well, following our first encounter with a female moose (see Benjiis Lake), returning back, we arrived face to face with this buck, male moose, which was probably going to meet his female back in the lake. He stood there for 3-4 minutes, looking at us, wondering if we would cleared his «road». I approched slowly to get a better view, and then, he decided to step in the woods, pursuing his route toward the lake. Still, he was in no rush, eating along the way, and I managed to get a couple of shots while we passed by him, at about 15-20 feets.

Bonjour Robert,

Très belle rencontre, ce n'est pas quelque chose qui arrive souvent. Très belle photo, l'orignal est impressionnant.


Hi Robert,
What a lovely photo. I can really see that you sneaked up to him. The OOF leafs in the FG gives it this spy kinda photo. I love the way you've framed the moose. Great colors and perfect lighting hitting the top of the moose.

Robert bonjour, quelle belle et heureuse rencontre vous avez faite là!! Bon cadrage et bonne attitude de l'animal qui vous obseve, mais... je trouve un peu perturbant visuellement, la tache lumineuse et trop blanche! au centre de la photo!! Mes félicitations, Didier.

Bonita y natural captura Robert, con agradable POV y encuadre.
Me agradan los suaves tonos del entorno, así como la agudeza del disparo.
Saludos... Ricardo

Nice and natural capture Robert, with pleasant POV and framing.
I like soft tones of the environment, as well as the sharpness of the shot.
Greetings... Ricardo

Salut Robert,
Alors, qu'elle rencontre impressionnante! Ça fait longtemps que je rêve de vivre ça mais bon, je n'ai pas encore eu cette chance... Vous avez très bien réagit à la situation car cette photo est très bien prise. Bonne exposition, prise de vue, éclairage et détails. J'aime bien le fait qu'il vous regarde dans les yeux comme ça. Ça doit être impressionnant de les rencontrer simplement, au détour d'un sentier, wow!... :-) Bienvenue sur TN et j'ai hâte de voir vos prochaines photos. Merci,

  • Great
