WhatWHAT???, Grand Teton National Park, WY. May 28, 2014 © Copyright Ben Gundy – all rights reserved.

My workshop photo buddy Pete and I were photographing sunrise at an overlook, overlooking the Tetons mountain range.  Pete got a cell phone call from the workshop leader that there is a Moose in a nearby campground. We were just finishing anyway and we moved a little faster putting our gear away then headed out to the campground, which was about eight miles away. BTW, my sunrise panorama of the Tetons came out real nice and will post the image at a later date.

Pete and I arrive at the campground in about ten minutes and sure enough we found the moose along with the rest of the workshop participants. Since it was still barely sunrise, 5:49am, under a cloudy sky I bumped up the ISO to 1600. We photographed the Moose for another 45 minutes until we had our fill of Moose shots. Evidently, this Moose feeds in this particular campground for most of the year, the campground is a great Moose habitat.

I chose this image as being different that your average static Moose shot and for it’s humor. I hope you like it…
