    Default exploring some nice moose habitat in mid-September

    I love this coming season...




    big cow spotted on the drive early morning...





    hobblebush now has berries and some leaves are starting to turn..







    caterplillar









    I just love birch glades with fern/hobblebush understory. There's usually lots of moose sign...






    One of two moose rutting pits I found...







    14 pointer with a nice wide palm...






    healthy yearling bull...






    happy autumn

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Perfect Fall photos if ever I've seen them. Love the caterpillar and the birches. The moose are great as always.

    Your reports are short on words, but your amazing photos speak volumes, and they tell the entire story of your adventure in great detail.

    Thank you for another excellent report!

    I think that the caterpillar will be a Spotted Tussock Moth. We saw these guys munching on leaves all over in Maine last weekend. I'd never seen them before - they're like a creative mix of wooly bear and bumblebee.
