Dangerous place for a cow moose and her two calves to be, although this was a quiet side road, far too often I`ve witnessed them crossing a busy highway. Approaching or getting between a cow and her calves is asking for trouble as they become very aggressive and will charge. We just bided our time while I got a few long shots and she quietly retreated into the trees.

I have encountered this trio before, but they were gone before I could stop and get the camera ready, so this was especially sweet :)

    An amazing capture!! We have moose crossing our highway quite often, and the collisions are always horrible, both for the moose and the vehicle. She's certainly eyeing you!!

    I love this wonderful capture and not an easy one either from how it sounds when the mother is protective of her young, but you certainly knew the right way to do it...Great entry!

    I was once at 4th Machias Lake in Maine and saw a guides small pick-up truck with it's hood and cab roof caved in...I asked him what happened and he said he was driving a dirt road at night when his headlights startled a moose coming the other way...When he stopped the truck the moose trotted right up and over it and kept on going the other way...

    Thanks for your comments and favs!! .. and yes, John, it takes very little to startle a moose into doing something like that. Their reaction is usually to charge right at the object that startles them and the results can certainly be dramatic or tragic for all concerned. Thanks for sharing..
