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.
