My FAVORITE kind of Surprise in the Woods!!
we headed out to the woods
to see if we could find wildlife of any kind
It was a slow day..
a few birds...
Then we spotted
I knew what they were the minute I saw them.
But did we see the creature?
So we rode on, out to a really pretty little lake.
We had a little snack and then realized it was later than we thought
and figured we'd better head back home.
So we go down the winding roads, talking about how cloudy it was getting, and almost too dark for pictures...
what should be RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD????
What? you ask?
A big, BULL MOOSE!!!
I was so excited!!
I took the first picture through the window because I was so scared he was going to run away if I got out of the car.
Which he DID!!:
(Don't worry, I wasn't this close on his tail..I used my zoom! I said I was EXCITED,
but I'm not NUTS!)
He did the most amazing thing!
It was almost like he wasn't sure he saw what he saw...
so he stopped
to take a second look!:
And then he put his head down to head away.
Back to Moose business.
(I wonder what Moose Business really IS?)
Hanging around the swamps, munching on tree tops,
laughing at all the puny deer?:
They always look
no sense of humor,
I mean..I was smiling!
Because I was seeing an elusive MOOSE!!!
He gave one LAST glance towards his safe home in the woods:
And that was the last we saw of him...
He did run off into the woods then...
We drove up to where he ran into the side of the road,
