A chance encounter of three adult moose together just after sunset last night. A bull and two cows were feeding on the willows beside a swamp. Right after I got this shot the cow in the centre lowered her ears and appeared ready to charge and since I had already decided to back the vehicle up, so as not disturb them any further, I quickly got a few shots and let them be..

A very special Thank You to je suis moi for the nomination!!

    Yikes! That's what you call a close encounter with an angry moose ...Glad you were safely inside your car and you knew the signals of the ears laid back as a warning..It makes me appreciate this wonderful picture all the more after reading your description..
