This young guy and his momma visited our yard several times last Winter.
He was only interested in cooling off in the snow, while momma kept a watchful eye about 30 meters away.

A very cute portrait with snow on it's nose. You are fortunate to have wildlife such as this in your yard. Nicely done!

Wow- right in your yard! So cute...if you can say that about a moose....:) . Love the close view of his snowy nose- just looks like he's having fun (and maybe you were too!)

Lucky you!  Just colour me green, John. :)   Makes me want to stroke that velvet muzzle.

Excusing the pun John, but so cool!  Nice one.
Make your life spectacular!

Love the snow on his muzzle! Great capture! I've never even seen a moose in the wild so am really jealous they visit your yard!!

A really nice shot, with all the snow on the nose.
How lucky you are to have guests like this in the garden!

I think you have captured the understated beauty of this young moose very well John. The snow on the nose and the texture and warm brown tones of the coat are sublime.
