Bull Moose: Washakie, resting. I was worried about this bull. He’s going better—but still limping. He feeds and moves around, but is quick to bed back down. I have another full page of Washakie: from earlier in the year.
Equipment: Images on this page were captured with either a Nikon D4 or a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 200-400mm lens on a Gitzo Tripod, Arca-Swiss Ball Head, and Wimberley Sidekick. When action is slow, I use the D800, but switch bodies when it appears there is going to be action.
If you like moose, check out my Moose images at my Teton Images site. Most are presented with an artistic effect.
