Moose in Grand Teton National Park

Moose in Grand Teton by galerainwater.com 

Hello everyone I had an absolute blast shooting moose in Grand Teton. The Teton range was socked in with clouds for several days and shooting landscape of the mountains was impossible. I found these moose in the Gros Ventre area of the park. There were several photographers and a park ranger around much of the time. These moose were definitely used to people and ignored us the whole time although we kept a safe distance. There were two bulls laying down and I was happy to see that because I had never had the opportunity to get a good shot of a bull. They layed for a couple of hours and I just waited patiently and they finally got up. Then the bigger bull challenged the younger one and the locked horns. Then a little later it just got better and better one of the bulls spotted  a cow and two calves. Now the are a total of five moose to capture. I got so many good shots these are just some. If I have time I might share some more later.

Thanks for looking and any comments are appreciated. Just click the comments link at bottom.

    Jackson Hole is our favorite place in the whole world. And the moose is our favorite animal. I went to your website but was unable to locate a place to order prints. Do you happen to sell prints of these great photos?
