Moose near visitor centre Denali National Park Alaska

Film Ektar 25.
Scan of pic from LX.
This moose laid down near the visitor centre with her calf.
I was able to crawl army style to capture this portrait.
She watched me approach and then just laid down for a rest.
Lucky for me.
The calf just wandered around us for an hour or so.

You're a brave one! I am surprised the mother didn't regard you a threat. Any shots of the calf?

Nice close-up! She seems pretty relaxed.

Reminds me of my back yard in the spring. That method of getting a shot of a cow with a calf is a great way to get dead.
