Moose on the Loose!

I was recently whining about how I haven't seen many moose this season. Then, suddenly a moose appeared in my yard yesterday morning.  We think he/she spent the night somewhere on our property and we caught it getting a bit of breakfast.
 

  

  

The last photo shows the moose exiting our driveway and heading across the street where our neighbors have a nice pile of willow branches ready to be munched on.

Of course, I forgot to set my white balance before I started taking pictures, so I had to do a bunch of editing afterward.  Not so pleased with those results.   Oh well.

Later that same day ... the moose was still hanging around the neighborhood.  I took this photo through the kitchen window.

Now that is just fantastic! We have them here but I have only seen one and it was in the dark and trotting.

Hi Vicki I do miss those big ol Alaska moose. We had moose on our property in N Idaho too, however, they are Canadian moose and much smaller. Here in OR I guess they just don't come down this far. Great photos.

Yes, she was quite huge. Rick has determined that it was a she because it lacked .... you can imagine.
