    Default three moose in one day

    Saw two hanging out in a bog...








    Saw this bull near Hobbs Brook, about a mile in from the Kanacamagus...





    Followed him for a long time. He eventually layed down for a nap...





    Happy Trails

    Those are some awsome pictures. I've seen Moose here and there and even got some on film but never had an opportune moment for some nice shots as these. What equipment are you using?

    Outstanding as always, Patrick! The first shots look very young, a yearling? The second set older and a little more grizzled. Shedding some winter coat.

    Awesome photos, I am in the market for a new Digital Camera.

    It is as much the lens as the camera now adays. A good SLR (Canon or Nikon) with a 100-300mm zoom that has Image Stabilization is an awesome combination.

    I shoot with an "old" Canon D60 with either the stock lens or a 100-500mm zoom - no stabilization.

    Just recently my Canon Powershot A60 bit the dust which I had for several years. It took great looking photos for a $200 camera. Long ago I had a 35mm SLR with 3 different lenses, filters, etc... I miss the ability to change lenses and really zoom in on those shots that are off in the distance. Now I have my eye on the Nikon D40 which is a new entry level camera to the DSLR line. I've been told that for the money- $400 or so, it is a great camera. If anyone knows more about the Nikon D40 please let me know what you think.

    Thanks for comments! Brad is right, lenses are more important than the body. I use a Canon 300D Dgital Rebel (6.3mb). The lens is a Canon 75mm-300mm with IS, which I highly recommend. ISO was set to 400 with the first shot (mama) and the next three (female yearling). The ISO was on 800 for the shots of the bull. WB set on 'cloudy'. Largest aperature, unfortunately, since light was scarce.

    Happy Trails

    A very nice lens. That is my next purchase as I WANT the IS feature. I was shooting yesterday at The Biltmore Estate in NC with a standard 25-85mm lens and a 500mm zoom. Neither have IS and I have to be careful when i am taking long shots.
