Wild Life Stories from the Pond – The Elusive Moose

The Pond (and I am being generous in calling it that, because it is really just a Prairie Pothole fed by melting snow and summer rain) has seen lots of activity for the past few weeks. .

The biggest excitement this morning was the elusive Moose. The farmers around here often talk about seeing moose, but I only saw one once as it thundered through the pond and disappeared into the woods. But today the moose was just outside my fence, and though clearly in a hurry, he paused and looked my way. I think a moose has better eyesight than I thought, because I was still in the house.  I took my first picture, hoping the window wasn’t too dirty.

  1. Hi,
    What a great selection of wildlife so close to home. Love the pics, and the moose I find adorable (no moose in OZ) such a pretty face. How lucky you were able to get a photo of the hawk, well done.
