Not really :-) !  He was simply crossing a creek, I was luckily at the right place to get this head-on shot. 

Although he appears intimidating, I was far away and he was completely at ease. He simply walked away soon after.

Great perspective on this imposing species, and the approaching view really shows off that handsome head, Kiran.  Its a shame the light was rather flat and I wonder if slightly lightening the image would help to present it at its best.  Just my 2 cents worth.  :)

Great animated shot...reminds me of a time long ago (speaking in the voice of an old timer) when I actually was charged trying to take a picture of a bull moose. I ran into a lodge pole thicket which his antlers couldn't get through (he did manage to break a few trees).

an impressive Bull soon to get to his prime. If he survives, he'll be a monster Kiran. Love the perspective and eye contact
Make your life spectacular!

Very cool image. The snow on his head and snout make it even better.

Excellent! Nice very dark pelt with bright eyes. Snow is handled well.
