Wow what a portrait, he seems to be trying to figure out what you're so interested in looking at. The expression on his face seems very wild, the texture of his hair is great and I love the blurry background and the frame, Very nice.

Hi Adrian, I've not seen a moose on TN before so good job! I love the straw hanging out of his mouth and how he is looking straight at you too. Good portrait with sharp details and features. Well done.

I love this portrait. The fur-detail is fantastic, pose and comoposition are very good and colors/lightening are fantastic. I love the straw of grass in it's mouth. Well done & TFS!

Very nice portrait of an ÄLG, Adrian.
Good POV, nice colours and well composed.
It's good to see a moose for an old moosehunter.
The moosehunting in Sweden is a very popular movement,
it's a license hunting, with very strong control.
Paul, the meat is very good.
Hi Adrian, very nice shot. The pose is superb, especially with that straw in the mouth. The lighting and composition are both great but I wonder if it is a weeny bit over sharpened.
On a sideline, have you ever eaten moose? Very toothsome stuff!

Lovely portrait, Adrian. The eyes looks very nice. I also wondered about over sharpening. But I have found certain furs (cheetah fur is the worst) to be adverse to any form of sharpening. The moose's coat looks like one of those. The head does look awesome, though. Love the straw and "goaty". The DOF borders on being shallow and I might have considered stepping down a bit. It's not a problem though, I am just having a bad "hair day". :) Great shot, Adrian.
