Shadow Shot Sunday ~ #10 ~ Moose In The Shadows

This is our resident moose in Idaho.

She comes in out of the shadowy forest to drive our dogs bonkers!

Oh my gosh ... look at those spindly legs! LOL

Great pictures!

Daisy said...

Great pictures, Cassie! How cool is that? I've never seen a moose in person. Happy weekend to you, my friend! :)

As the token Alaskan among your commenters (as far as I know), a couple of points: the spindly legs enable them to walk through very deep snow, and I was thinking "what a skinny yearling" until you said she's been around for awhile. Our moose are heavier; maybe it's the colder climate? Don't know ... but your pics are nice!

Nice pictures of the moose! This is 'one ugly animal'! I'd be excited if I got to see one, though! Happy Weekend!

Wonderful, wonderful pictures..The shadows are great, but the moose wins..I had a young one go in front of my car once..Thank heavens I was going slow and could stop.
Happy SSS.

The sunlight and shadows fall upon the woods and meadow. The moose, what a stately animal, with perhaps a less sunny attitude than we, and the dog, prefer. But he is bigger than all of us combined, so we put up with his intrusion while admiring his looks...

I'll bet those dogs just go crazy! What a tease! And, what a great shot. Their front legs seem soooo long in relation to the rest of their body.

Resident moose...what a hoot...I once awoke to a bear in my trash when I lived in Colorado...not a hoot...scary!

Wow! That's amazing! Moose are very different creatures, aren't they? I always sort of asume they are like deer or horses or something but they are not at all similar! Look at those long legs and the muzle ! Incredible photos - thank you!

Dimple said...

Looks like a youngster to me, too.
Hope you get back soon! The spring is advancing apace!

LDH said...

Oh Cassie, I have never seen a moose and to have one so near your home is amazing! I have heard they are quite large.

Love the shadowy forest shots!

Kindly, ldh

Patti said...

Wow, I've never seen a moose either, Cassie. Great captures of his visit.

Pretty shadows of sunlight streaming through the trees.

MyMaracas said...

How lucky you are to see that amazing creature! We kept our eyes open for moose on a camping trip in New York, but never saw a one.

Thanks for your comment on mine! I hadn't thought of Miss Havisham in ages, but I think I will now every time I look at that old vase. LOL It's way beyond neglected and forgotten - there's no silver left on the thing.

Look at that moose, Cassie..... I can understand him driving your doggies bonkers... Great picture!!!

Have a wonderful Palm Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

Great shots of the moose. I haven't seen moose in person either. Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed all your pictures.

Wonderful series of photos! Love seeing the moose from different perspectives! And the play of shadows shows just how well a moose can hide!

chubskulit said...

Wow these are super rich shadows, beautiful sceneries too!

Me (aka Danielle) said...

Love these pictures! Moose are truly one of my favorite wild animals!

Crafty Green Poet said...

wow, excellent photos, what a lovely animal she looks!

A wonderful series of photos showing Moose emerging through the green. A very handsome looking animal. If it drives the dogs bonkers, does it flee when they
bark, I wonder.

Barbara said...

Wow, Cassie, who could top that?

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Whoowaah! Moose? Awesome shot with all the greeny around and of course the sunny day.

Beverley Baird said...

Great shadow shots! The moose looks to be just a youngster! They can be pretty imtimidating!

Grandma J said...

OMG! That moose would scare me. You are brave, Cassie...very, very brave. :)

The Japanese Redneck said...

Cool! That's something you don't see here in MS.

Johnny Nutcase said...
