As we got closer he/she went into a more threatening pose before waddling off.

Just came back from a family vacation at the Rocky Mountain National Park. Here are first day photos of the mom and a calf.

Those moose are so photographable. We seem to always find them on the Grand Lake side of the Park in the area with the streams and marshy areas. I found 5 females with babies on my last trip to RMNP and they were seemingly docile but I always make sure that I have a way out or rock to get behind.

We were strolling around Sprague lake late morning around 10:30am on Aug 29 and suddenly the pair came out of the wood! I was hoping the big male would follow, but it never happened.

The last two photos actually were taken on Aug 30 from about 15meters away. I tried my best not to disturb these lovely animals. We went back again the next day around 5PM and didn't see anything around the lake, but ducks and other small animals. Then I noticed slight movements in the bush so I slowly walked up one step at a time behind trees and took the last two.

More to come as we spent the first night on Aug 28 and left Sept 4. I already look forward to going back as I started to process these photos after finishing family photos.

Cheers

Here's a regular visitor to my back garden in London from today with an E-M1iii and GM5. Very patient wee fox.

Cheers. I'd like to. You don't like being lectured by non-photographers why your gear is deficient? :coffee-30:
:) you got that right. I am ok with criticism so long as it is constructive. Often there are too many rude non-constructive all over the places. It would be really nice to have another great talent such as you around here more often.

Cheers

Big Horn Sheep time :) Taken at ~10k Feet elevation at the Rocky Mountain NP. It was around 2pm local time, but I wasn't going to pass up the chance because of harsh light :).

Taken with EM1 III + Oly 300mm F4.0 IS Lens. As someone had suggested to my bird post, I made this set a public view so anyone can check them out directly from my Flickr album.
