The dogs were barking up a storm at the picture window, so I went to check it out, and a big ole moose is standing there munching away on the bushes. Complete un-fazed by the crazed dogs, but as soon as I showed up, (s)he looked up and started lumber away away. I ran to get my camera and got this pic through the window:
Then I ran outside and got this one before he got too far for pictures.
This guy/gall was massive!!! Often see moose in the area on on the property, but this one was BIG! I'm thinking a male because of his size. Males shed their rack in the fall, and grow a new set in the spring. In close to 10 years of living here, this was the first time I've been able to actually get a picture of a moose close by!
