Jackson Hole WY Bull Moose

We've been here since October 4th shooting landscape and some wildlife; we've been fortunate to capture stunning landscape, herds of buffalo and some moose and elk.  However the big bull moose and elk are still in the high country and we just haven't seen nor been able to capture any.  Until this morning. 

We woke this morning to colder weather than we've had and heavy overcast skies.  We decided to take a drive along the
Gros Ventre Road
and no sooner made the turn onto the road than we saw this big fellow standing on a hill.  We were able to park on the side of the road and after climbing a steep hill were able to capture these images.  We used Sandy's Canon 1DsIII and the 70-200 with a 1.4 extender making the 200 a 280mm.

We aren't wildlife photographers so we don't go around armed with the huge lens however occasionally we luck out.

Enjoy the images and remember your comments and questions are always welcome.
