The Anchorage bowl area is home to approximately 1,000 moose in the wintertime (compared to 250 during summer). On this January morning, I spotted this easy-going gal munching on the apple tree in our back yard. She wasn't actually *in* the yard, but was reaching over the fence. After about 15 minutes, she stepped over to a comfy looking spot in the snow and settled down for nearly 12 hours. I was able to get as close to 15 or 20 feet away and snap to my heart's content
What a neat thing to be able to watch! I only see a moose in the wild once every couple years. And it isn't in my back yard! How's your poor apple tree, well pruned? I like how you processed the image.
