Majestic Moose!

On our last canoe trip, we encountered this gorgeous moose grazing in the shallows just before the entrance to a portage trail. We managed to get quite close to him and took several photographs. We just watched as he ate the weeds and shook off the bugs. It was threatening to rain at the time and it was quite humid. We tried not to move or to put our paddles in the water. Eventually, our dog, Kelsie heard him and let out a little growl. At that, the moose turned his head our way. We had to make a pretty hasty exit as were were pretty close to him and we were a little afraid he might charge our canoe. As it turned out, he just returned to his grazing and we continued on our way to our portage. Sometimes, I wonder about Kelsie - he seems to think he is a lot bigger than his little four pound frame sometimes... 
As always, you can click on the photos for more details.
