I always wanted to see a moose too, since everyone here seems to have seen many, as well as have at least one 'moose story'.
I never did...Until last evening!
An adolescent moose casually walked out of the wooded lot next door in broad daylight, crossed our little stream and strolled right toward the twig arbor we built in our FRONT YARD! It was dinner time, and we left our plates and ran to the window. Big brown eyes watched us from only about 5 feet away for a minute or so.
Thankfully this was not a 2000 pound bull moose, but a pretty young thing. By the time we gathered our wits and the camera, Adam was able to get off this one photo of her as she turned to meander back across the stream and into the trees~
After 15 years, TWO big 'wildlife' experiences in one week! I was delighted---our own sometimes-zoo right in our yard~
