Lady Moose

The county road from the tiny town of Jefferson, Colorado to Jefferson Lake travels through moose country with a few rustic campgrounds along the way. Don’t always spot moose but while there on Monday got lucky enough to photograph two of them having a snack of leaves and a drink. Would have gotten more pictures but a big pickup with out-of-state plates came roaring down the road and when the dust cleared the moose were long gone up the mountain. They were in the road when we first got there...shudder to think what would have happened if they’d still been there when the truck came along. Thank goodness, most visitors coming into our state respect the land, wildlife, and natural beauty of Colorado. Others, unfortunately, just don’t seem to get it.

Hey yeah, BB, moose are the most dangerous to humans wildlife in Colorado. Always take care. So she was standing in water maybe 20 -30 yards from the road. I kept the car with door open (just in case) between us while shooting. Zoom lens....voila!

When I visited Canada I was also lucky enough to have spotted a moose by the road. So cool
