Incredible capture--but he doesn't seem to be spooked by your presence. Too bad about the smoke, but it does look like fog. Congrats on the AC

Thank you very much friends! And thank you approvers!

We were quite a distance from wildfire danger, probably 20-30 miles. He wasn't on the run from fire, but from me stopping to take his picture. :)

Darn! Smoke! I was hoping this was fog! Sure is a
great shot of this moose, though, Katy! I hope
this big guy is safe from the fire...all the other
animals, too! My prayers are still coming that way!
I hope your next shot comes with the news that
the fires are all out! Congratulations on your
new Blue!
