More Maine North Woods Moose

Cow Moose and Calf leaving the river after a meal. Taken from Kayak.

Had a fun few days in North Maine woods again at the beginning of September. The bulls that we had seen this July were no where to be found.  They were in the woods preparing for the upcoming rut. The cows had their calves out in the river and lake to feed. These moose are very shy and wild. Extreme care had to be sued to observe and photograph them.

The calf was much more aware and nervous about our presence than the cow. He easily spooked.

This is a different calf about 1/2 mile upstream from the one pictured above.  he walked along the river bank and played peek a boo with us through the alders. Our entire mode of transportation was by kayak as can be seen here. Friend Cecil Gray-Registered Maine Guide joined us for a couple of days of Moose "hunting".  

Until Next Time

What great pictures again. I love them. Our moose are not so shy I think. I manage to get them near like last week. But it was almost dark. High ISO did well but I dont have that equipment you have...
Last picture is very beautiful
