Wildlife Pictures, Page 4
Expert wildlife photographers stake out their quarry like a hunter and wait, sometimes for days, for the perfect shot to appear. I am not one of them. But once in a while on a trout stream the wildlife photo opportunities come to me, and when I can I have my camera ready.
I spotted this moose calf resting in the snow across the road from the river I was photographing in Alaska in late February.
I was at a popular spot for dipnetting, and this little rodent (a vole, I think?) hit the jackpot with an earlier angler's leftover snack.

One of the most common sights on Chena Hot Springs Road is a moose crossing the road. The next most common sight is somebody taking a picture of the moose crossing the road.
