Very nice. Even with a 600mm you were pretty close.

Nice shots.
From the title... I expected to see a moose roast on a Christmas dinner table, killed by that beast of a lens. BTW. They say it tastes like chicken.

Were these right off the road or did you have to hike to find them?

Nice shots, Clinton! Glad to see that lens paying it's way...

Such clean fur that I'd expect they were "zoo moose," and a short hike.

These are wild moose, in the wild.

We took a quick drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Surprisingly, these two were just off the road, about 1/3 of the way from the S curve to Brighton.

Moose aren't uncommon in this canyon, it was just a treat to go out with the 600/4 freshly unwrapped and find them right there.

I think you would be hard pressed to find a stand of aspen trees like that at a zoo, as well as, that much snow based on the location of our local zoo and lack of snow fall. The snow in the mountains definitely helps to push the animals down from the higher elevations and make them a little more accessible.

You should visit the Toronto zoo sometime. Okay, not right now, since the snow is all melting as it hits... but trees, snow, moose!

Ok, do you have an extra room to rent while I'm there?

Are you really saying as a Finn (Ex Finn) that you've never ever eaten moose (the European elk, hirvi) meat?

Here's a link to the full album. Most of these are with the FA* 600/4. A few are with the FA* 200/4 Macro.

I was kidding about it tasting like chicken. Of course I have had Hirvi.

Cheers.

D'oh! Too subtle humor for my straight forward mind.

Nice pictures, Clinton!
