Caption: I was snapping away, when this Bull Moose turned to stare directly at me, and take a step forward! Eek! He calmly went back to eating, and I hightailed it out of the area- but MAN! he was magnificent!

I think it was quite considerate of this handsome
guy to pose next to that pretty white flower!
He is gorgeous and so is your shot! You were
probably right to take your leave at that point!
Congratulations on your AC!

Handsome dude, looking fine with his velvet covered rack! That's some rather tall grass, too! What an exciting moment for you. Glad you didn't drop the camera when you ran! Kudos, and AC congratulations to you.
