An excellent peek a boo shot...Is that horn spread normal for eastern moose? Our western variety seems to have a more flat spread.

Our spreads vary from moose to moose, with a guy like this one to a totally flat appearance. These are Alces alces Americana the second largest sized moose in North America, behind Alaska's. ...and thy're called antlers, not horns.  :)

Super shot Mark. Like the eye contact even if it's looking manning. Hopefully they have not had too much tick trouble this year?
Make your life spectacular!

A very perky, intense look- like "I see you!". Nice color and detail- wish the oof stuff wasn't in the middle of his nose, but what can you do? Still a fine photo.

Nice composition. Great eye contact and I love the bits of fall color you chose to include. The OOF foreground veg is unfortunate.
