This year’s model

The other evening, I was out in the yard with the dogs, when I heard a crackling from the other side of the house. This being Alaska, and Ashlee having an irrational hatred of mammals significantly larger than her, I immediately grabber her collar and pulled in Macgee’s leash.

This is what peeked around the corner of the house:

I shuffled the dogs inside, and grabbed my camera. Mama moose was on the other side of the house, so I tiptoed around and managed to get a few shots before they got tired of me leaning around the corner and pointing the camera at them.

I also took a short little video with my D90. It’s a little awkward to hand-hold, so please excuse the shakiness. I was not very interested in fumbling around with a tripod, for obvious reasons.

    Ryan, good to see you back online! You’ve had a crazy few months. Glad you a) got a house and b) said house did not burn down.

    And you ended up getting the D90, huh? How do you like it?

  2. Adorable! The calf (?) looked so happy springing around!

  4. Wow! Those pictures are adorable! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pic of a baby moose before.
