Had a unique encounter with this handsome bull as he foraged along a small mountain stream this summer while exploring the beautiful state Colorado.

All your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated

Excellent image of this bull munching on leaves. Colors and exposure are spot on. The only bull moose I’ve ever seen in Colorado was in very low light and cameras back then didn’t perform well in low light. Is this in the Granby/Grand Lake area?

I can't help thinking he looks happy with his meal! A beautiful shot emerging from the grasses with that raised head.

I agree with David.

Perfect placement in the frame and a really excellent capture of this handsome bull, Ken. I love the way he is happily munching on the fresh greenery - and I have never seen such a happy, contented Moose, and he's almost smiling for the camera!

Great pose and setting, I really like the raised head.
