Default Swamp moose

Went looking for eagles at the local wetlands and found this fella.

Wow, nice captures! It's well known that moose like to eat aquatic plants in swamps, but I had no idea they go so deep as in your last image.

Great series, is this the beginning of a new acronym, MIW, (Moose in water).

Great shots, this is on my list of shots I want to get. I have never seen a moose in the wild. I have looked while on a trip thru Yellow Stone and some of the other parks in 1997 but got skunked

Love these! The last one is wonderful, while I've seen a couple of moose in the wild (and one time it was in/by a stream), I've never been close enough or with a camera to get any shots. The ones I've seen were near Jackson Hole, in a rural area next to the national forest. They are just so incredible.

Impressive photos of an impressive animal! Excellent detail, exposure just right, and greac captures of the action!

Magnificent shots of a fine looking animal. I like the velvet antlers forming on this one.
