What’s on your mind?

See the look in her eye.

I believe this bullish fellow is the winner of the battle in Moose Battle Gently

    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.

  4. laelgold says:

    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.

    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!!

    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!

  11. Ned's Blog says:

    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 🙂

  12. Monica says:

    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?

  13. Monica, these are wonderful photos! I love that mountain shot, too.

  14. Monica says:

    And strangely gentle, too. We see 3 regularly at our mountain property. They seem to know us and be comfortable with our presence.

  15. Monica says:

    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.

  16. Monica says:

    Laz, thank you! Lucky to be in that spot at the time.

  17. Monica says:

    Aren’t they beautiful, Ian? Just glorious.

  18. bluebee says:

    These are fabulous photos, Monica. They are such bizarre creatures – so comical, but, at the same time, intimidating.

  19. kenny2dogs says:

    “WOW” Monica, them there beasties are too close now. I can smell them 🙂
    Great photographs though.

  20. lazfreedman says:

    Fantastic pictures Monica, i love them 🙂
    Peace,
    Laz

  21. 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.
    Cheers
    Aussie Ian

    Very good to know, and I will update my subscription setting.

  24. Androgoth says:

    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 🙂

  25. Androgoth says:

    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 🙂

  26. Monica says:

    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!

  27. Androgoth says:

    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
