A Shiras Bull Moose subtlety vies for the attention of a resting cow moose after an early autumn snow fall.

All your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

A wonderful overall image of both the moose pair, as well as a perfect setting. The dusting of snow is a great addition to the overall scene. Terrific work.

Beautiful behaviour capture, Ken. I love the content and composition, the body language between the bull and cow as she feigns indifference and he paws at her to get her attention - and the setting with the dusting of snow just ices the scene. Wonderful image!
