I love the “dawdling blogger” description, laelgold. I’m one, too, and there has to be a place for us, I hope. Looking forward to your post.
Oh, Monica, that is so very kind of you. I’m just seeing this now because I am a dawdling blogger. I will send link to new post which will very likely include your wonderful moose pic (which would certainly include attribution). Thank you very much.
Hello laelgold, and welcome to Sweet Planet Poems! I visited your blog and like it so much! Yes, my writing and photos are subject to copyright. However, I’m certain I would be pleased to give permission for your blogpost use with attribution. (Even public domain images would be subject to use with attribution.)
Thank you for these lovely photos. How wonderful to be in close proximity to these wonderful animals. I want to use one pic to illustrate a blogpost about a moose dream. Are they subject to copyright? Thanks so much for letting me know. And may more moose encounters come both of our ways!!

Hi Ian, Love having you here. Thanks for your comments and good wishes, my friend.
Back for a second look at your pics of these great animals.
Hope you are well my friend.
Wishing you much love and happiness and keep up the great photography.
Emu aka Ian
Hello Ned, They have a reputation for being cranky and skittish, but I haven’t experienced that. We have seen a lot of moose this year – more than usual – and it’s always very special. Thanks for visiting!
I had the rare treat of seeing a bull moose in Alaska once and will never forget it. Your photos reminded me of their grace and majestic presence — like they know something about life we don’t. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Sandy, it’s you! I was wondering why I hadn’t received notice of gardenpath postings. I will miss your poetry and stunning photographs! Can you tell me what’s up?
Monica, these are wonderful photos! I love that mountain shot, too.
And strangely gentle, too. We see 3 regularly at our mountain property. They seem to know us and be comfortable with our presence.
Yes Kenny, they were close. The bull rose up out of the willows as we walked by. He had something else on his mind besides us, however. The sound he was making was amazing, and I have it on video.
Laz, thank you! Lucky to be in that spot at the time.
Aren’t they beautiful, Ian? Just glorious.
These are fabulous photos, Monica. They are such bizarre creatures – so comical, but, at the same time, intimidating.
“WOW” Monica, them there beasties are too close now. I can smell them 🙂
Great photographs though.
Fantastic pictures Monica, i love them 🙂
Great pics you have shared Monica,antlers are massive, like the well taken shot of the eyes
Beautiful creatures, sad people take antlers as a trophy.
Thank you Monica 🙂 🙂
Very good to know, and I will update my subscription setting.
I have managed to send you an invite Monica
so I will look forwards to seeing you inside my
Space whenever you have the opportunity 🙂 🙂
it is great to see you again my great friend 🙂
the reason for that is because I had a major problem on my Space and had to change my username, if you hover your mouse over my profile you will see that it is now andro53 and the older one’s were andro51 🙂 None of the old one’s will work and all that you will see is that the author has closed his Space, when actual fact it was never closed 🙂 Nuts I know but there you have it, I will try sending you an invite 🙂
Androgoth, and wonderful it is to hear from you. I haven’t been getting any emails about your postings and didn’t think you were active on WordPress. Thanks so much for checking in and for your lovely comment!
Hey how are you my great friend? 🙂
I have enjoyed looking at your new
posting, the photographs are wicked
and you have certainly treated us to
a fine array of Moose pictures 🙂 🙂
Be good and wicked,
oh and naughty too 😉 lol
