Alces alces: Up Close & Personal


Look! A giant bull moose in my neighbor's yard! Let's go right up to it!


Wow, he doesn't seem to care that I'm right the heck in front of him.


Now if that ain't a Boon & Crockett rack, I don't know what is.


This moose has actually been living around our neighborhood for awhile--we've seen him several times, but this is the first time he's wandered onto our street. Winter's coming, and I'm sure he's packing on the pounds for when all the leaves are gone and it's just twigs and pine needles.

Lucky bugger, all I found in my front yard this morning was a scorpion!

The closest thing to that I've ever experienced is a runty little muntjac rooting through the neighbour's bins.
