Love is in the Air

Love is in the air!! It sure was for this bull moose today, anyhow. I spotted the cow this morning and was attempting to photograph her when this guy walked onto the scene. She continued to browse, ignoring his advances until it was clear she wasn't in the mood, at which point she could buck and run away. Watching a pair of Alaskan moose crash about right in front of you can be a bit intimidating and when the bull's body language made it clear he no longer wanted me around, I obliged and moved on. If there is one thing I've learned over the years, it's that you don't want a rutting bull moose to perceive you as competition for his girl.
